The White Princess Quotes by Philippa Gregory
The real history behind ‘The White Princess’
In this case, the love affair just serves to cement her hatred for her betrothed, Henry Jacob Collins-Levy , who in turn resents having to marry a woman who openly despises him. But England demands a reconciliation between the Lancasters and the Yorks, and this marriage seems to be the best way to do it. That does not mean anyone involved is going to like it very much. But it is at its best when it portrays the complex negotiation and manipulation between Henry and Lizzie. Not every arranged marriage works out well, obviously. But history tells us that Henry and his queen grew to love each other, and inklings of that are obvious in even their most contentious meetings.

Henry VII & Elizabeth of York's all kisses (The White Princess)
It's got posh English accents, lush Tudor-era sets, and elaborate dresses, but don't mistake Starz's new miniseries The White Princess —which premiered last night—for your standard costume drama. From the very first episode, it's clear this is a show that's hyper-relevant to the current socio-political climate, despite being set in the 16th century. Adapted from Philippa Gregory's book of the same name—and also from history—Elizabeth of York must marry, to her great distaste, Henry VII, an outsider who wasn't trained to be king but is suddenly handed the crown, to everyone's surprise. He still has to prove his legitimacy as king, but almost immediately he passes new legislation that terrifies his subjects. Sounds kind of familiar, no? But that's just scratching the surface. At its core, the series centers on the women behind the crown who wield the true political control.
