The journey has been long, fraught with high winds and rough seas but at last we have made it to France. It is a cool evening and we slowly make our way to Versailles and to our chambers...

We walk into our chambers and I immediately take Katherine to our bed. I kiss her softly, You and our child need to rest my love. I want to keep you both happy and healthy!

Laughing and placing a kiss upon his lips "We're both fine my love....there is no need to worry" Wrapping my arms around his neck, I gaze up at him lovingly and try to put the heart break of leaving my family behind from my mind.
"I love you with all my heart."

I love you more than you realize Katherine. More than you know. I kiss her in return as our respective servants start coming in and bringing in our belongings and unpacking them. I turn to a big ornate box and slowly open it, relieved that they aren't broken or damaged in any way. I turn to Katherine, Come here love... I take her hand and lead her to the box. I reach in and grab the Queen Consorts of Navarre crown and place it on her head. Smiling I say, There has never been a more beautiful woman that the crown has sat upon...

"There is no other King I would rather be the consort to....I am your queen and always will be." I hold my head regally and feel the strain on my neck as I support the diadem on my head. Smiling at Francis, I take his hand and place it upon my belly. "Vive la famille royale de Navarre" Giggling with glee, I carefully remove the tiara and hand it back to him.

Vive la Navarre et d'Angleterre et Vive la France! I take the crown from her and place it back in the box. If that crown is too heavy for you then you may wear a lighter tiara for when we meet the King of France. My hand gently rests upon her swollen belly and silently I pray for a healthy child no matter the gender.

I shake my head; smiling at his continued touching of my belly. "It will be absolutely fine." Sighing slightly, I move over to our bed and sit down. "I will look like a queen and remind the French that I was born to mother kings." With a smile, I lay down on the bed and breath slowly.

Re-entering our chamber, I feel a twinge in my swollen belly. Sighing in exhaustion; I ignore it and take a seat....trying to breath slowly as another twinge spikes through my abdomen.

I rush in after Katherine, nearly flying at her feet. Are you alright? I ask, concerned greatly for her. My hands moves stray hair from her face.

"I'm fine darling...." Breathing out and closing my eyes for a moment. Standing up and moving about the room, my hand resting gently upon my bump.

I stand still again....Wincing in pain; I feel a gush of fluid from my body. Looking instantly at the floor and then raising my head to meet my husband's eyes. "Francis....What's happening?"
Feeling scarred and in enormous pain, I look at him pleadingly. "It's too early, we're not in Navarre! I don't even have a birthing chamber...."
Panicking more and more, I try to breath slowly to no avail; I was too scarred, terrified for my child and myself.

My ladies scramble around me to make the bedchamber ready, as I climb into the birthing chair in considerable discomfort. I grit my teeth. The Midwives that travelled with us enter and begin their work....for this is an event of great importance. I am carrying and birthing the heir to my husband's throne. Letting out a scream, I begin to push and lift my entire body with the agony. I flop back into the wooden prison. Breathing in and out, tears stream down my face....This wasn't how it was meant to be. I wanted to give birth in Navarre or at least in England surrounded by my family....Another pain strikes me! I screech out, and push once again. "Francis!... Francis!...Francis!" I call out in desperation, needing some moral support in this action.
Sure that the entire French court can hear my screams, I release another and throw my head back in absolute agony.
"I can't....Please, I can't!" I call out as I push with my whole being...pleading for this ordeal to end.
It lasts for hours, the labour drags me to the deepest pits of despair. But in my darkest pain, I feel the urge to continue as my mother must have done, and my Grandmother before her.... Gripping the arms of the chair; I push for the final time. And then, all of a sudden; It's over.
Collapsing into the wooden chair, I breath slowly and rest against it. My chief Midwife wraps the bundle in cloths and then presents it to with a bow; smiling as she says "Your Majesty is delivered of a healthy baby girl...A little Princess, my Queen."[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I have been kept outside her chambers this entire ideal and I wanted nothing more than to be by her side as she births our child. I can hear her screaming out for me yet her ladies refuse to let me enter. Hours go by and still no baby has been born. Now I grow nervous. Will our child be born alive. Will the bay be born healthy? Will Katherine make it through the delivery? But then suddenly the sweetest sound echoes out the room...

A baby cry! I cannot contain my smile as I know the hearty cry means a healthy baby! I start walking into the room as the midwife proclaims the child to be a happy and healthy baby girl. I do not care that the child is a girl, I am happy tat we finally have a child to call our own.


I walk up to Katherine as she holds our daughter in her arms. I kiss her softly on her head, Our daughter. Our beautiful daughter. Elizabeth, Princess Royal of Navarre.

Cradling her in my arms for a moment and then gazing up at my husband, I felt complete...blissfully complete and joyous. "Our Lizzie...." I return my eyes to my beautiful daughter. So small and delicate but at the same time strong and calm.
"I should write to Henry, Mary and Charles...let them know they have a new niece; a new Elizabeth to love."
Looking up at Francis once more, I smile brightly "Would you like to hold her?"

Of course I would love to hold her.. I take little Elizabeth into my arms and I bring her close to my chest, cuddling her to my heart. She wraps her hand around my finger and tears of happiness start running down my face. I kiss her softly on her forehead. Look to Katherine, I will write to your Brother the King. You can write to everyone else if you wish.

Smiling brightly, I breath in relief. Sore and uncomfortable but feeling immense joy, my heart beat becomes normal again; my body relaxing from the ordeal that I had just endured. "Are you sure that you don't mind calling her Elizabeth? We can name her after your mother instead." I say with a smile.
