The whole York family was under lock and key on The White Princess Season 1 Episode 2.
Elizabeth was tricked into captivity at the palace, Lizzie can't go out to play because she's pregnant and medieval attitudes about her condition are scary close to those of present day gynoticians, and poor, simple Teddy is a threat.
Even Cecily, who thinks she's a gatekeeper, is captive. She may think they're under quarantine from the plague, but she wouldn't be allowed anywhere even if half of England weren't dying.
Cecily is just the worst. I want to give her some benefit of the doubt, but my god, she just doesn't give us anything to work with, does she?
I mean, sure, she's the often overlooked second daughter – always an afterthought, she was literally the backup bride for Lizzie's original engagement to the dauphin of France.
Her childhood was punctuated by periods of living in »

Starz latest adaptation of Philippa Gregory's Cousins War saga is a true gem.
I'm going to be upfront with you: I couldn't decide if I should review as if this show is a "stand alone" and ignore The White Queen, or take the prequel series into account. I'm going to try to split the difference; hopefully, I'll be able please devoted fans and first-timers alike!
The White Princess is off to a wonderful start. Showrunner Emma Frost has built a world rich in detail. The production filmed at several historical sites, which really enhances the feel of the show.
Even with the sets, the attention to detail is high. The scene where Lizzie pleas to »

Those who read Phillippa Gregory’s novel The White Princess and watched the premiere of Starz’s adaptation of the book on Sunday likely noticed something quite different about Henry and Lizzie’s charged first coupling.
In Gregory’s work, “Henry very actively rapes Lizzie,” executive producer Emma Frost tells TVLine. “That was something that I felt wasn’t the only possible route and wasn’t something that I feel is right for a TV drama, and isn’t something a 21st century female audience is going to be okay with on any level.”

Whether you’re a Tudor scholar or someone who’s better versed in Westeros’ royalty than that of England, The White Princess‘ Emma Frost promises you’ll be able to follow along with Starz’s new drama about England at the start of King Henry VII’s reign.
And part of that is thanks to one ballsy, young king.
The eight-episode series, a sequel to the network’s The White Princess, gets underway as Henry Tudor both ascends to the throne and chooses a wife: the politically expedient Princess Elizabeth of York; their union also unites a divided England.
The only dragon you'll see in The White Princess will be on the Welsh flag, but that should be the only disappointment for Game of Thrones Fanatics watching the new Starz offering. There are plenty of scheming mothers, a missing prince to challenge the king, lustful romances, and oh yeah, some magic.
The follow-up to 2013's The White Queen has a new cast, but veteran show runner Emma Frost continues to deliver a world rich with historical detail and beautiful people willing to do just about anything to stay alive...and more importantly, stay in power.
Study up, and decide which side of the battlefield you'll stand on! The White Princess premieres Sunday at 8/7c on Starz! »

If you are the type of person who likes to pore over family trees, “The White Princess” is tailor-made for you: The Starz drama, based on the Philippa Gregory book, tells a fictionalized version of just a sliver of one of the most complicated moments in English monarchy. If you don’t know your Lancasters from your Yorks — your Plantagenets and your Tudors — “The White Princess” is a steep learning curve. If you do — or if you’re willing to learn — the drama is an enjoyable, ridiculous romp through the early days of the first Tudor king, Henry VII, and his marriage to Elizabeth of York, the titular white princess. (White, in this case, because York’s badge was a white rose, while the Lancasters’ was a red rose — like Starz’s “The White Queen,” a loose prequel to this, from 2013.)
The main thing to know is that Richard III, the »

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
History is the story of men: an unending chronological spiral of Kings, Emperors, Chieftans and Pharoahs all hellbent on spilling their rivals’ blood. This focus is understandable enough, but Phillipa Gregory, in her series of novels The Cousin’s War, shines light on the women behind the famous men: the various queens, dowagers and princesses who have their own vicious battles to fight.
The White Princess is the sequel to the BBC/Starz 2013 co-production The White Queen. Set during the War of the Roses, that miniseries followed Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beauford and Anne Neville, three noblewomen with their eye on the English Crown. That series concluded with the Battle of Bosworth Field, in which Henry Tudor defeated King Richard III and claimed the throne of England by right of conquest.
This picks up immediately afterwards, with the victorious Tudor family consolidating their claim »
