The White Queen - Episode 1.02 - Press Release

Ep 2/10
Sunday 23 June

Elizabeth’s coronation is a grand affair – and not just to silence those who say her marriage to Edward IV is not legal. Once Queen, she and her mother Jacquetta get to work, marrying off her siblings to the nobility to ensure their family’s security, and create a royal family loyal to Edward as he brings peace to England.
The Lancastrians are stripped of their titles. Margaret Beaufort fumes when her son Henry Tudor loses his title; she rages to her second husband Henry Stafford that he must do something about it. But Stafford cannot; York rules England now and Margaret must accept it. Margaret Beaufort’s son Henry has been in her brother in law Jasper’s care since she was married to Stafford, and desperately misses her young son.

Isabel and Anne Neville are also resentful of the Rivers’ family’s rise to power - all the young noblemen have been married off to Elizabeth’s sisters. Worse, Elizabeth has unpicked their father’s control over King Edward IV. Warwick tells his daughters not to worry, he has a plan – he will ask the King for his brothers George and Richard to be married to Isabel and Anne.

Margaret is forced to attend her husband’s nephew Harry Stafford’s wedding to Elizabeth’s sister Katherine – both just young children. Margaret’s mother Lady Beauchamp is always cruel to Margaret, and distraught, she rushes to the chapel to ask God why she must suffer so much pain? It seems that God gives her an answer when Margaret has a vision.

Elizabeth has a daughter, Princess Elizabeth, and two more follow but the longed-for son eludes her.

Warwick captures Henry VI, but is shocked when, despite this great service, Edward still refuses him his brothers in marriage to Isabel and Anne. Elizabeth and Jacquetta gloat, imagining themselves safe from the so-called Kingmaker’s power and malice, but they are wrong. Warwick secretly joins forces with Edward’s brother George - he and Isabel are married.

Isabel is distraught to learn her new husband and her father have declared war on the king: her marriage was a signal to muster to an uprising - she and her sister merely their father’s pawns. Warwick plans to make George king.

Edward IV is furious and it is clear that Edward’s own mother Cecily is in on this rebellion too, the old rumour that Edward is not his father’s son rearing its head again. Warwick and George want Edward to declare his marriage a sham.

Elizabeth attends a state visit to Norwich, while Edward waits for his enemies to attack in Nottingham. But they take him by surprise and Warwick holds him captive. Elizabeth’s brother Anthony arrives with the worst news of all. Their father and brother John are dead: captured and beheaded without charge or trial, simply on the orders of Warwick. Elizabeth is devastated - her passion for Edward has cost her too much.

Margaret Beaufort is jubilant as she hears of Edward’s capture. She visits her young son Henry Tudor at Pembroke Castle, and tells him that he will be king - God has told her in a vision. Stafford is horrified at this treasonous talk. Margaret writes to the king’s brother George and pledges him her support if he will return her son’s title.

By the Thames, at the foot of the Tower of London, Elizabeth swears a curse to see Warwick and Edward’s brother George dead for killing her father and brother...

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
