Posted by
The new period series returns to the world of The White Princess and The White Queen, telling the story of the turbulent life of Catherine of Aragon, her arrival to Tudor's England and marriage with Henry VIII.

Charlotte Hope (the perverse Myranda from Game of Thrones) leads the cast portraying the young Catherine. The show is written by Emma Frost (who also created acclaimed series The White Queen and The White Princess), and Matthew Graham (Life on Mars, Electric Dreams, Dr. Who).

The Spanish Princess was filmed in England and Spain. Most of the shoot took place in The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol, where the producers built a full-scale, interconnected replica of Tudor-era Westminster Palace.
