DRAWN FROM THE NOVEL BY PHILIPPA GREGORY* of the same name and part of The Cousins’ War book series, “The White Princess” sees England ostensibly united by the marriage of Princess Elizabeth of York (Lizzie) and King Henry VII, but their personal and political rift runs deep and the divide between them threatens to tear the kingdom apart once again. Rumors circulate that Elizabeth’s long-lost brother ‘The Boy’ (aka Prince Richard aka Perkin Warbeck) is alive and planning to take the throne–forcing Lizzie into an impossible choice between her new Tudor family and the boy who could be her own blood and the rightful York King. “The White Princess” is a tale of power, family, love, and betrayal, which charts one of the most tumultuous times in British history uniquely from the point of view of the women waging the ongoing battle for the English throne.

Elizabeth of York | Lizzie

Jodie Comer

Princess Elizabeth of York (Lizzie) is promised in marriage to the newly anointed King Henry VII in hopes that it will unite the Houses of York and Tudor and bring an end to “The Wars of the Roses.” Daughter of King Edward IV and Queen Elizabeth, “The White Queen,” she is beautiful, warm and kind – a princess to her very core. Lizzie knows her duty and is publicly loyal to her husband, playing the part of wife – and eventually queen – faultlessly. In private, though, she resents and plots against him. If they could only transcend their mutual mistrust and historic hatred, their marriage could bear fruit. Or perhaps they will destroy each other and, in doing so, plunge England straight back into bloody war.

King Henry VII

Jacob Collins-Levy

Despite his mother Lady Margaret’s faith, Henry Tudor never thought he’d become the King of England, but after winning the Battle of Bosworth that’s exactly where he finds himself. He’s deeply mistrustful of women, but the only way to secure his reign is to marry Princess Elizabeth of York (Lizzie), thereby ending the “The Wars of the Roses.” Once married, Henry finds himself increasingly caught between his wife and mother, who treat him as a battle-ground. Matching wits and wills, Lizzie and Margaret maneuver to gain Henry’s favor, which they know determines the future of England, their own fates, and the fates of the ones they love.

Dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville

Essie Davis

Dowager Queen Elizabeth must now step aside as her cherished eldest daughter, Lizzie, takes both center stage and the crown in this dangerous and swiftly changing Tudor landscape. Elizabeth is an indomitable political strategist and her commitment to the York cause – and the boy whom she believes to be her last remaining son, Prince Richard – never wavers. Elizabeth tries to transfer her ambition to her daughter, but is distracted with the search for answers about her missing son. As Elizabeth’s blood feud with Lady Margaret intensifies, she is deeply pained to find herself increasingly in conflict with Lizzie, whose welfare and future become quickly entwined with the fate of the House of Tudor.

Lady Margaret Beaufort

Michelle Fairley

Margaret Beaufort, King Henry’s mother, was the calculating mastermind behind Henry’s ascent. She has sacrificed her whole life to propel her son’s unlikely accession to the Throne of England, but now that they’re at court together, she realizes they barely know one another. Desperate for intimacy with her son, she installs herself as Henry’s chief political advisor, but Lizzie’s arrival at court threatens the balance of power. Margaret knows that securing the throne for the Tudor line won’t be easy, and works to fortify Henry’s rule as York rivals plot against them. As her counsel is tested, she finds herself increasingly drawn into a battle with Lizzie for Henry’s heart and mind.

Jasper Tudor

Vincent Regan

When Henry Tudor took the field at the Battle of Bosworth, he had his uncle, confidante and right hand man by his side to help him claim his victory. Jasper Tudor is a brilliant commander of armies and a moral man whose utter loyalty to his nephew is rare and very moving. Jasper’s life has been hard and lonely, and his secret, unconsummated love for Henry’s mother, Lady Margaret, is returned by her but has never been allowed open expression. Perhaps now that war is over, Jasper might find love and companionship in his twilight years. Or perhaps he might find darkness in the people he has loved.

The Duchess of Burgundy

Joanne Whalley

Sister to dead kings Richard III and Edward IV of England, and sister-in-law to Dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, sensual, intelligent York widow the Duchess of Burgundy presides over her fashionable and cultured court; a place of beauty, light and learning. Her life has been filled with loss. She’s lost her father, her brothers and her husband, Charles the Bold. Her step-daughter Mary, and Mary’s two children Phillip and Rettie are the center of her world and the Duchess would do anything to protect them. The Duchess craves peace, but with Henry Tudor on the throne of England all hope of that is shattered...and the Duchess of Burgundy must choose a side.

Cecily of York

Three years younger than her sister Lizzie, Cecily feels forever in her shadow and would like nothing more than to marry a king herself.

Margaret Plantagenet | Maggie

In contrast to the tall, elegant, blond gaggle of York girls, their cousin Margaret Plantagenet (Maggie) is small, dark-haired and serious. Maggie doesn’t want the limelight or status of being a York. In fact, Maggie wishes to be invisible, along with her younger brother, Teddy, the Earl of Warwick, because Teddy’s position as a York heir places him in very grave danger in this brutal Tudor world. Maggie and Teddy have already lost their parents (under King Edward IV) and all that they have left is each other.

But when Teddy’s life comes under threat, so will Maggie’s relationship with Lizzie.
