The White Princess is a sequel to Emmy-nominated series The White Queen, and stars Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster), Suki Waterhouse (The Bad Batch) and Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones).
The eight-part historical epic picks up as the War of the Roses comes to an end and a fragile peace has been established. The victor, Henry Tudor – soon to be Henry VII - is promised the hand of Elizabeth (Comer) to cement the future of the country.
