The Spanish Princess (2019)
Wednesday 31st July 2019
The anticipated trilogy that began with the Golden Globe ® and Emmy ®award-nominated The White Queen (2014, Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television; 2014, Outstanding Miniseries) and critically acclaimed The White Princess continues with The Spanish Princess when it arrives on DVD 12th August 2019 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
Drawn from the best selling novels The King's Curse and The Constant Princess written by Philippa Gregory, the powerful miniseries features the strong-willed Princess of Spain, Catherine of Aragon, played by Charlotte Hope, alongside Stephanie Levi-John, Nadia Parkes, Aaron Cobham, Harriet Walter, Laura Carmichael, and Ruairi O'Connor.
Returning to the world of Tudor royal court intrigue, The Spanish Princess is a vivid and captivating story told uniquely from the point of view of the women, which also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history: the lives of people of colour living and working in 16th-century London.
Catherine of Aragon is the strong-willed young Princess of Spain, who has been promised the English throne since she was a child. She arrives in a gray, rain-lashed England with her glorious and diverse court, including her ladies-in-waiting Lina - a Spanish noble of African-Iberian descent - and the sweet and free-spirited Rosa.
When her husband, Prince Arthur, dies suddenly, the throne seems lost to Catherine until she devises an audacious plan and sets her sights on the new heir, the charismatic and headstrong Prince Harry, who will one day rule as King Henry VIII.
