The young princess Catherine of Aragon is the daughter of Spanish monarchs, Isabella and Ferdinand. The princess travels from her home country to England to meet her betrothed husband Prince of Wales Arthur who is the heir to the throne of England. The princess receives a cold welcome from the members of the King’s court and struggles to adapt to the customs of England. Catherine is also shocked by the romantic letter she receives from none other than her soon- to- be husband’s brother Duke of York, Harry who is arrogant and proud. Then Arthur dies prematurely after the marriage and now she has to meet her destiny in the hands of Prince Harry whom she desires to marry to remain a Queen as he will become the King now.
Then she marries the king and becomes his queen but tensions arise between the couple. King Henry dismisses her as his wife because she is not able to produce a male heir. He goes against the rules of the church and divorces Catherine. He also has an affair with the alluring lady- in- waiting for Anne Boleyn and marries her.
