I arrived at the chapel for the christening of my daughter. I was accompanied by my ladies and my sister Mary had come too. As I entered I held Elizabeth in my arms and approached the altar where she was to be christened and I turned to face the door as I arrived at the altar and standing beside the bishop I waited patiently for the arrival of my husband the King.

"Charles entered the Chapel to attend Princess's Christening. He waited with other guests King's arrival. Queen Anne was already there with her daughter. And Bishop Cranmer was ready to start the ceremony He bowed respectfully at them"

Geoffrey was told to attend the ceremony in order to be at guest's service in case they need something. He was standing silently next the door, making sure that everything was alright

Royce was still in England, so he decided to attend his niece's Christening before leaving for Scotland. He sat at his place after greeting Queen Anne with a deep bow

I nod my head towards Royce Westmoreland and the Duke of Suffolk as they both arrived at the Christening. Whilst standing beside Bishop Cranmer I saw Geoffrey Lonshord standing by the door and I signalled for him to come over as I wanted to speak to him before Henry arrived.

Henry walked in the Chapel while everyone bowed to him. He saw Anne and smiled, taking place next to Bishop. One of Anne's ladies took Elizabeth's from Anne to place her in Mary Boleyn's arms

Thomas bowed to King and Queen Anne. As Lady Mary Boleyn approached him with baby Elizabeth in her arms, he started the ceremony

"In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritu Sanctus. We are here to consacrate this child as God's child. Since now, she will be part of Christian family. May God bless Princess Elizabeth Tudor, her parents and her life. May she have a long and prosperous life, may she grow up in virtue and holiness.."

He took the baby in his arms and put some holy water upon her head

"Ego te baptizo, Elizabeth, in nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritu Sanctus. Amen"

Henry looked at baby Elizabeth and then he turned his eyes towards Anne

She is, my love. She is Princess of England. And she will be my only heir...until the birth of our Prince..

He whispered smiling and holding her hand

I smile at Henry as he says words that delight me.

"One day our daughter will be part of a great family and kingdom I am sure of it and I thank you my love in saying she will be your heir until our son is born I am so happy. We should get Elizabeth her own household my love don't you agree?

I look at Geoffrey Lonshord as he approached and bowed.

"Geoffrey you have been greeting all guests today who have come here tell have my father, uncle and brother arrived yet for I have not seen them and if they have not please can you go and inform them that I will see all three in my private chambers tonight.

He bowed again and left the Chapel

Henry smiled

Of course she will have her own household, my love. I'm thinking to put Lady Mary at her service. Now come, my Queen...you need to rest..

Holding her hand, they left the Chapel walking towards Anne's chambers

I take Henry's hand and I knew he was right I did need rest.

"I think it is a good idea for Mary to serve her for it will be useful for her too and Lady Bryan I would consider looking after the household. But we can discuss these later as now you are right I am tired and I must rest Henry. I say kissing him softly too.

Henry kissed Anne's lips and Elizabeth's forehead. He smiled

I promise that everyone is against our marriage and our daughter will be punished, my love. Now reach your chambers with your sister Mary. I need to discuss something important with Master Cromwell..

Then he left the Chapel while everyone bowed around him
