Based on the Philippa Gregory novel of the same name, THE WHITE PRINCESS tells the story of the marriage between Elizabeth of York (Jodie Comer) and King Henry VII (Jacob Collins-Levy). Edward III, the last of the Plantagenet kings, has died in the 1485 Battle of Bosworth. Now the White Queen's daughter and the late King's lover, Elizabeth of York, is now forced to marry Henry VII, the first monarch of the Tudor dynasty. In doing so, she must also contend with His Majesty’s mother, Margaret Beaufort (Michelle Fairley), who was instrumental in placing Henry on the throne, and remains a powerful force at court. Meanwhile, the Dowager Queen Elizabeth (Essie Davis), works from behind the scenes to empower her daughter while secretly supporting those who may threaten Henry VII’s crown in the future.
