Critics are already raving about the The White Queen series. People magazine gave it 4 out of 4 stars, NY Post said, “Don’t miss it,” Glamour called the show “breathtakingly beautiful,” and US Weekly notes it’s “resplendent in romance and intrigue.”
The show, starring Max Irons, Janet McTeer, James Frain and Rebecca Ferguson, is a riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women—Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, these women will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne.
The White Queen centers on two families during The Cousins War, now popularly known as The War of the Roses, as rumor suggested the House of Lancaster had adopted a red rose as a heraldic symbol, and York, a white.
Now it’s your turn to sit back and feel like royalty!
