He became erratic; his scheming more and more far fetched. Eventually he decided that the only way he could convince King Edward to go along with his plans was if he separated Edward from his council… So Thomas broke into Hampton Court Palace.

Each group believed the other was wrong… and by that I mean they thought the other sides religious beliefs were an automatic ticket to hell. Jane made sure that her Protestant faith was at the core of all she did. And as a precocious and crazy smart teenager… that meant a lot of arguing! All well and good… unless they had a religious slip or went and converted. They were family after all and though Mary was staunchly Catholic and Jane Protestant, surely they could get along for Christmas?

Until next time, Lady Jane—until we meet again. Jane has passed but her light still leads our way. I had the good fortune of sharing important ideas and moments with her, and I had the privilege of 'designing' some of her dreams. Her resolute kindness always moved me. She had many valid reasons for asking for what she did, but she nonetheless did it with immense courtesy, taking nothing for granted.
Jane was always young at heart and always learning. When she laughed, her cheeks reddened and her eyes squinted as if she were still a little girl. Once again Jane tried to object to what was being thrust on her.
In her own words she later described the scene, saying she objected. Winchester countered by saying he just wished her to put it on to see how it suited her.

On the evening of the 11th a messenger came to the tower with a letter from Mary, dated the 9th.
In the letter, Mary declares herself as Queen and asks that bloodshed be avoided. The letter was read out loud and followed by a silence that was only broken by the crying sobs of the two Duchesses.
Lady Jane said nothing. They arrived on the 12th and were luckily diverted from her attentions, which likely saved their lives. For now Mary headed an entire army, marching to London.
