"The White Princess"

          The highly-anticipated STARZ Original Limited Series “The White Princess” – a follow-up to the Golden Globe® and Emmy® award-nominated STARZ Original Miniseries “The White Queen” will premiere on Sunday, April 16th at 8PM ET/PT. Set in 15th century England, the drama is drawn from the novel of the same name by Philippa Gregory and part of The Cousins’ War book series.
 
          “The White Princess" picks up three days after the conclusion of “The White Queen,” as a new generation ascends to the throne in a tale of power, political divides, family, love, and betrayal. “The White Princess” is a gripping historical drama uniquely told from the perspective of the women waging the ongoing battle for the English throne: Lizzie (Jodie Comer), Lady Margaret Beaufort (Michelle Fairley) and Dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville (Essie Davis).

 

          The story begins as one of England’s most politically turbulent times – The War of the Roses – is coming to an end. An uneasy peace is achieved when former King Richard III is defeated at the Battle of Bosworth, and the victor, Henry Tudor, soon-to-be King Henry VII (Jacob Collins-Levy), is married to Lizzie – a princess from a rival house and Richard III’s former lover.
