Drawn from the novel of the same name by Philippa Gregory, “The White Princess” is a tale of power, family, love and betrayal, charting one of the most tumultuous times in British history uniquely from the point of view of the women. The tempestuous marriage between Elizabeth of York (Lizzie) and King Henry VII, officially marks the conclusion of The War of the Roses, but the real battle for the throne is far from over.

    lol almost none of the costumes are historically accurate. I laughed when that historian said the costumes were authentic to the period, when he should probably know that they're not, then again he's probably not a fashion historian, but still. I know it's a TV show and the costumes aren't supposed to be 100% accurate, but most of them look more fantasy than historical.

    I was looking forward to this. Very disappointing. I hope they continue season 2 and wrap up the white princess the book and transition into the story of king Henry the VIII

    ? red wasn't the colours of whores! it was the very best type of velvet- embroidered! it would have cost a fortune!
    too much victorian thinking wound in there.
    whores wouldn't have been able to AFFORD that type of red!
    you wore your best dress…. one you would continue to wear afterwards.

    aside from that…. the clothes weren't that bad. they were far closer to the period than many other period
    dramatizations I've seen. many have bordered (and gone beyond) into the ridiculous. I liked the men's clothes.

    I know I'm a little late to the party on this one but I'm a little confused about Jacobs (Henrys) comment on the colour of the dress. Red is the colour of Lancaster right? So surely wearing a read dress is more of a compliment and a symbol of her joining his house? Rather than an insult? And black was a really expensive so popular with wealthy people. If she really wanted to insult him she should have worn white, the colour of York. Henry even says in the first episode 'forbid it to snow I don't want to see any white' or something along those lines.

    If it's so "authentic", why is Elizabeth getting married in a red and black dress when the real Elizabeth of York got married in a blue dress, as was traditional among aristocracy during the time period?
