    Katherine of Aragon is born Catalina, the Spanish Infanta, to parents who are both rulers and warriors. Aged four, she is betrothed to Arthur, Prince of Wales, and is raised to be Queen of England. She is never in doubt that it is her destiny to rule that far-off, wet, cold land. Her faith is tested when her prospective father-in-law greets her arrival in her new country with a great insult; Arthur seems little better than a boy; the food is strange and the customs coarse.

    Overall

    Having enjoed Philippa Gregory's work in the past, The Constant Princess perhaps is not a bad novel, but the audio I found extremely irritating.

    The 'Princess" has a Spanish accent (which is fitting) which was rather annoying, made all the more so by the echoing sound the voice made when we hear her thoughts.

    This is one book I would have preferred to read rather than listen to.
