It looks like it will be highly fictionalized. For starters, "Harry" should have been about 10 years old when he first met Catherine and, in the clip, the actor who plays him obviously looks much older. If you are into soap operas, it might be good entertainment though.



The title itself is pretty odd as Catherine (Catalina) was not a princess by birth, but rather an Infanta in Spanish terminology. She had two older sisters (Isabel and Juana) who would eventually become princesses (i.e. heirs to the throne under the naming conventions of the Spanish monarchy), but Catherine herself never held that title in her home country.



Furthermore, the word 'Spain' was not used at the time in royal titles as Aragon and Castile for example remained separate kingdoms. It would still take a long time for the Spanish kings to use the title of King "of the Spains" (in the plural), and "of Spain" in the singular was not used officially until the 19th century, I think. It is highly unlikely then that Catherine would refer to herself as a "Princess of Spain" as she does in the trailer . She could have said e.g. " I am an Infanta of Castile and Aragon", but I suppose that would be too complicated for an American audience.
