    Natalie, a very sad day indeed, it’s a strange thing to say but i always get a sore throat
    every year at this time! Coincidence, maybe. Visiting the Tower of London tomorrow.
    I would love an email to know how i can get the cards.
    Many thanks again for a wonder website. Deborah X

    • Thank you for your lovely comment Deborah! You are very lucky to be able to visit the Tower on such an important date. I will email you when the store is up and running. Thank you so much for your interest!

  3. Hi Natalie, I’m trying to get in touch with you, but had trouble with sending you a message above. Want to tell you about the 24th printing of SECRET DIARY OF ANNE BOLEYN and a great sweepstakes being held in its honor. Very best, Robin Maxwell

    A great book about Catherine is “The Constant Princess” by Philippa Gregory. Really brings her to life and makes her a real person. Wonderful. She has also written several books now about the Rulers preceding Henry VIII.

    I have just come across your website and found it very interesting. I have an interest in English history especially the Tudors and the Stuarts.

    My wife and I finally got to go to the UK in 2011 and last year. I had always wanted to go the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey. I found it reat experience. Last year I finally got to go to Hampton Court. It was also an incredible expeexperience. It’s hard t imagine that you are walking where Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn walked.

    Also would like to ask if there somewhere in Australia where I can buy your book?

    • Dear Clark, lovely to hear from you. The Tudor period is incredibly fascinating and it is wonderful that we can walk in the footsteps of so many notable Tudor personalities. The Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace are among my most favourite historic sites. Thank you for your interest in my book, you can order it via The Book Depository, which offers free worldwide shipping. It’s very reliable, I’ve used in countless times! Here is the link:

    I am hoping to visit the tomb of Thomas Boleyn In Wells Cathedral in the next couple of weeks. This tomb belongs to the brother of the Bullen who was Mayor of London and grandfather of the Thomas Bullen who was buried at Hever. You should be able to find pictures of the tomb with a Google search.

    I am surprised that I had never heard of this over tomb before. This Boleyn was a leading figure at the Cathedral before the Tudor era began. He has a finely decorated and well preserved tomb although the nose on the effigy has been battered.

    I have also put a copy of a Holbein drawing on eBay which I suggest might be a drawing of Anne’s father the Hever Thomas Boleyn. I have also put a black and white print of the Radclyffe Boleyn to go with the Holbein portrait.

    I thought you might be interested in this earlier Somerset Boleyn tomb. I have not seen it depicted on other Boleyn or Tudor sites. If I find anything else of interest on my visit to Wells and the tomb I can let you know.
    I would still like to know when and why the Hever tomb had to be repaired with bricks.

    • Thanks for letting me know! I’m not sure if I’ve read about this Thomas before. I think I’ll need to write a little blog post about his tomb. Best wishes, Natalie.
