Storyline

Adapted from Philippa Gregory's best-selling novel and part of The Cousins' War book series, The White Princess sees England ostensibly united by the marriage of Elizabeth of York and King Henry VII, but their personal and political rift runs deep and the war that rages between them threatens to tear the kingdom apart once again.

Trivia

There are striking similarities between the War of the Roses' feuding families Lancaster and York and that of the fictional book and TV series Game of Thrones' feuding families Lannister and Stark. Michelle Fairley portrays the strong and determined matriarch in each TV series, though in this she is on the Lancaster/Lannister side while her character of Catelyn Stark fights for her Stark/York side.

Goofs

They show Elizabeth of York's aunt Katherine who married Jasper Tudor as a woman in her 50s or 60s. She was in fact about the same age as Henry VII and was in her mid to late 30s when the series takes place. See more »

Jodie Comer is a star
29 July 2018 | by cshine18See all my reviews

I normally wouldn't write a review for this, but seeing so many negative reviews I felt compelled to. So many of those reviews are about how The White Queen was great and this didn't live up to it, but I feel the compete opposite. I found The White Queen rather boring and frankly just hard to even get through. I thought The White Princess was much better and although only filmed several years after, it has a much more modern feel to it, as far as production quality goes. I can't speak to the historical accuracy, but I really liked the storyline. To be fair, I am a big Jodie Comer fan, so I'm definitely a little biased, but I thoroughly enjoyed The White Princess a lot.
