The latest television series by STARZ is about to grace our screens!
In 2013, BBC produced The White Queen mini-series, which was based on Philippa Gregory’s historical novel of the same name. Four years later, STARZ is now tackling another novel from the Cousins’ War series titled The White Princess.
The White Princess is set three days after the events of The White Queen, but sees a new generation ascend the throne in 15th century England. The series follows the daughter of the “The White Queen”, Princess Elizabeth of York (played by Jodie Comer) as she pledges to marry the recently anointed King Henry Tudor (played by Jacob Collins-Levy). Like all historical and royal marriages, they hope to bring peace to a war-torn country, but with England now unites, their marriage becomes divided. Rumours begin to circulate that Elizabeth’s long-lost brother, Prince Richard, is alive and planning to take the throne. Elizabeth now faces may choices: between being a Tudor wife and York princess and also between her new husband and a boy who claims to be her own blood and the true heir to the crown.
Starring Jodie Comer (My Mad Fat Diary), Jacob Collins-Levy and Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones).
The 8-episode mini-series premieres Sunday on STARZ and recaps of each episode will be available right here on The Nerd Daily!
