Stan has unveiled the official trailer for THE SPANISH PRINCESS which will premiere on the streaming service in May.

THE SPANISH PRINCESS follows on from the Golden Globe® and Emmy award-nominated series The White Queen and the critically acclaimed series The White Princess.

The series is drawn from the global best-selling novels, The Constant Princess and The King’s Curse, written by Philippa Gregory. 

Returning to the world of Tudor royal court intrigue, THE SPANISH PRINCESS is a vivid and captivating story told uniquely from the point of view of the women, which also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history: the lives of people of colour, living and working in 16th century London.

Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope) is the strong-willed young Princess of Spain, who has been promised the English throne since she was a child. She arrives in a grey, rain-lashed England with her glorious and diverse court including her ladies-in-waiting Lina (Stephanie Levi-John) – a Spanish noble of African Iberian descent – and the sweet and free-spirited Rosa (Nadia Parkes). When her husband Prince Arthur dies suddenly, the throne seems lost to Catherine until she devises an audacious plan and sets her sights on the new heir, the charismatic and headstrong Prince Harry who will one day rule as King Henry VIII.

Showrunners, Emma Frost and Matthew Graham said:

 "Catherine of Aragon has generally been depicted negatively, as an unwanted and burdensome wife, so this story of her early years as a strong, driven young woman and shrewd political player is a fresh and untold tale. We are also especially pleased to be able to bring into the light the inspiring story of people of colour in early Tudor England,"

 

THE SPANISH PRINCESS  also stars Aaron Cobham (Cold Feet, Coronation Street) as Spanish soldier Oviedo, Dame Harriet Walter (The Crown, Call the Midwife) as Margaret Beaufort, Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey, Marcella) as Margaret ‘Maggie’ Pole, Ruairi O’Connor (Delicious) as Harry (who will become King Henry VIII), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons) as King Henry, Alan McKenna (Save Me, The Hitman’s Bodyguard) as Richard Pole, Angus Imrie (The Kid Who Would Be King, Kingdom) as Prince Arthur, Alexandra Moen (Fortitude, Dickensian) as Queen Elizabeth, and Georgie Henley (The Narnia franchise, The Sisterhood of the Night) as Margaret ‘Meg’ Tudor.

THE SPANISH PRINCESS comes exclusively to Stan as part of its long-term partnership with Starz.

 

THE SPANISH PRINCESS premieres May 6 on Stan.
