History nerds will definitely know about King Henry VIII, England’s king from 1509 to 1547, notoriously known for his six marriages. Well, he was originally married to Catherine of Aragon. The entire story of Henry VIII is covered in ‘The Tudors’ where we see how he even went against the Church to annul his marriage with his first wife. However, the show does not give us many insights into the individual journey of Catherine. But now, ‘The Spanish Princess’, Starz’s sequel to ‘The White Queen’ and ‘The White Princess’, gives us all the answers. It narrates the tale of Catherine as she sits beside King Henry VIII to preside over the most glamorous court in Europe.
