The Spanish Princess: Season 1 (2019)

SEASON:

Season 1
The Spanish Princess

Critics Consensus

The Spanish Princess blends soapy melodrama with beautifully rendered historical set-pieces to paint a rounder -- if still not fully realized -- portrait of an often overlooked queen.

Audience Reviews for The Spanish Princess: Season 1

  • Sep 05, 2022
    the production, costumes, writing are good, sometimes slow and repetitive, I'm not so convinced by Catherine, but it's not bad
  • Aug 17, 2022
    a great show, really digs into how the royals ruled and how stressful it was sometimes.
  • Jan 28, 2022
    Aside from the clothing and historical inaccuracies, it's a brilliant watch. I watch it on repeat on primetv for comfort. I really enjoyed Charlotte Hope's portrail of Cathrine of Aragon.
  • Oct 19, 2021
    Excellent acting by Charlotte Hope makes this a great series. Her portrayal of a courageous woman in a man's world is beautifully done.
  • Mar 05, 2021
    This show isn't very historically accurate but that's ok because it doesn't pretend to be. It's entertaining with some great characters, particularly Margaret Beaufort and Maggie Pole. I've seen people complaining about the inclusion of Lena being pandering but she was based on a real person. In reality she was a personal slave of Catherine rather than her lady in waiting. Catherine was highly unlikeable unfortunately, very deceitful and selfish. Charlotte Hope can't do a very good Spanish accent either.

    I wanted to like this series. I love historical dramas. This one doesn't stick to history. I love Catherine of Aragon, and this isn't even close to doing her justice. I find Charlotte Hope's voice unpleasant, but her fake Spanish accent is intolerable. It's weird, and in no reality does it sound Spanish. I don't know what the casting director was thinking. I can't make it through season 2. I could give it three stars as a fictional period drama, if Charlotte Hope wasn't in it.

    The show would be amazing except for the bad acting of the star character, the queen. Her bad Spanish accent and over acting is annoying. Otherwise, the story lines, plotting and conniving are suspenseful, even for those that already know the history of Catherine, Queen of England. Because of the bad acting, I couldn't wait for end lol
  • Dec 22, 2020
    Terrible Pretends to be historically accurate but its pure fantasy.
  • Dec 04, 2020
    Seems like a big stretch to use the word historical to describe this. Opening seen, princess on the front lines of a battle field in a dress.... why not own up to what this is, put her in high heels and have her round kick all the moors out of Spain.

    The best drama show on tv why cancel it so soon Damn it !
