It’s Festivus, aka, The Spanish Princess (2019), Starz’ new adaptation of a Philippa Fucking Gregory book about Catherine of Aragon, has premiered! Strap in for all sorts of historical wtf-ery and some deeply wackjob costuming by Phoebe de Gaye in the second of many recaps. Frock Flicks is a family: if I have to suffer, you have to suffer with me.
Kids, I’m doing this on an iPad, sorry if things are weird! Never doubt my commitment to sparkle motion!
Margaret Beaufort interrupts them and tells them off. She gets Catherine alone and insists on being told if she’s pregnant, even going so far as to grope Catherine’s boobs. Catherine stalls, trying to seem like she’s fuzzy on pregnancy symptoms and saying she didn’t get her period for months when her brother died.
IMPORTANT HOUSEKEEPING NOTE: The next recap will be late! I’ll be swanning about at the Versailles fetes galantes next Monday, so both episode 4 and 5’s recaps will be posted two weeks from now! Désolé (but not really)!
