The Spanish Princess is a historical drama television series that aired on Starz from 2019 to 2020. The show is a sequel to The White Queen and The White Princess, both of which are based on the novels by Philippa Gregory. The Spanish Princess follows the story of Catherine of Aragon, the Spanish princess who became the queen of England.

The show features an ensemble cast, led by Charlotte Hope as Catherine of Aragon. Laura Carmichael plays Margaret Pole, a noblewoman and confidante of Catherine. Aaron Cobham portrays Oviedo, a member of Catherine's entourage, while Ruairi O'Connor plays Prince Henry, Catherine's future husband.

The series is set in the early 16th century, at a time when the Tudor dynasty is struggling to secure its hold on the English throne. Catherine of Aragon arrives in England as the bride of Prince Arthur, the heir to the throne. However, when Arthur dies unexpectedly, Catherine finds herself stranded in a foreign country with no husband and no clear path to the crown.

Despite the many obstacles in her way, Catherine refuses to give up her claim to the English throne. She sets her sights on Prince Henry, Arthur's younger brother and the future King of England. However, Henry is fickle and easily swayed by the opinions of others. Catherine must navigate a treacherous court filled with scheming advisors and jealous rivals if she hopes to win Henry's heart and secure her place in history.

The Spanish Princess is a captivating blend of romance, politics, and intrigue. The show features gorgeous costumes, stunning scenery, and a talented cast of actors. The attention to detail is impressive, with the show's creators taking great care to recreate the look and feel of Tudor England.

One of the strengths of The Spanish Princess is the way it presents Catherine of Aragon as a strong and determined woman, who refuses to be pushed aside by the men around her. She is a powerful figure in her own right, with her own ambitions and goals. At the same time, the show doesn't shy away from the challenges that Catherine faced as a woman in a male-dominated society.

The supporting cast of characters is equally compelling. Margaret Pole is a loyal friend to Catherine, and her story arc is one of the most affecting in the series. Oviedo provides a unique perspective on the events of the show, as a black man in Tudor England.

The Spanish Princess is a well-written and well-acted series that will appeal to fans of historical dramas. It is a fascinating look at a pivotal moment in English history and the woman who played a key role in shaping it. Whether you are a fan of romance, politics, or intrigue, The Spanish Princess has something for everyone.

The Spanish Princess is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (16 episodes). The series first aired on May 5, 2019.
