Recap Mondays: ‘The White Queen’ on STARZ (Episode 1) Review
Saturday nights just got a bit more Royal in the States! The new period drama ‘The White Queen’ premiered this past Saturday on STARZ. If you’ve read Philippa Gregory book ‘The White Queen’, then you’re familiar with the captivating story of Elizabeth Woodville, King Edward’s IV wife. Elizabeth was a commoner who’s storybook beauty caught the eye of the King. Legend has is that King Edward was besotted with her from day one! Now that’s how you catch a man.
This series is really a prequel to ‘The Tudors’, which basically follows King Henry VIII Grandmother’s (Elizabeth Woodville) rise and fall to power. I’m swooning over Max Irons who plays King Edward, he’s beyond HOT! In the first episode we get a chance see Elizabeth coming to the throne, once she’s married King Edward in “private” ceremony. (Loved her tie-dyed blue wedding gown.) I can already tell that I’m going love the contentious dialogue between Jacquetta (Elizabeth’s mother) and King Edward’s IV mother, Duchess Cecily. Jacquette is going to put that woman in her place. I’m so looking forward to watching this series, it has a lot of potential to be the next great period series! There are some saucy scenes in this series, so be sure not to watch this program with the kiddies in the room. I’ve attached a link to the first episode via YouTube. Will you be watching ‘The White Queen?’
