The White Queen – episode one trailer

Tensions are high as King Edward IV prepares for battle

The White Queen hits our screens on Sunday 16 June and in preparation, BBC1 has given us a tempting trailer to whet our historical appetites.


Amid the War of the Roses there’s a battle of the heart going on. King Edward IV (Max Irons) can be seen pleaing with Elizabeth (Rebecca Ferguson) to spend the night with him before he goes off to battle. “I won’t be your mistress,” Elizabeth passionately claims.

But Edward has his sights firmly on her and isn’t looking ready to back down ahead of a fight he fears he may not return from. 

High tension, bucket loads of secrets and seduction, it’s just what our Sunday nights need.
