On a recent visit to Hampton Court Palace, DH and I had a nice chat with Henry VIII, on the subject of Anne of Cleves. He was magnificently dressed and looked very convincing, just walking in the garden with one of his courtiers. I said, "I'm going to ask him a question." DH said, " you can't speak to him, he's the king." He was very nice, totally in character, so we bowed/curtseyed and called him 'your majesty'. Of course in reality he was a
monster ambiguous character.
