What an amazing Summer of Reading I have had.. I was lucky enough to be able to kick back at the beach house for the entire Summer and do nothing but walk, swim, eat, take photos and read! It was certainly a blessed Summer. The 30 year saga is truly on an epic scale and I really doubt Hollywood could come up with such an awe inspiring tale. It definately adds some weight to the adage, Truth is stranger than fiction. Hope you enjoy these great reads as much as I did. Be sure to let me know how you get on, I would love to hear your thoughts on these fascinating women.
Instead, they wait for what will come next. The new King Henry is going to be a good king to his loyal people, I say, despising myself as I parrot the words that Sir Robert Willoughby said to me as he gave me my mothers letter. And he has summoned all of us children of the House of York to London.
But hell be king, Cecily says flatly. Hes going to be king. Of course hell be king! Who else? I stumble over the question I have inadvertently posed.
The White Princess
Him, of course. Anyway, he has won the crown. And he will give us back our good name and recognise us as princesses of York.
Cecily makes a sulky face. In the last weeks before Richard the king rode out to battle, he ordered her to be married to Ralph Scrope, a next-to-nobody, to make sure that Henry Tudor could not claim her as a second choice of bride, after me. Cecily, like me, is a princess of York, and so marriage to either of us gives a man a claim to the throne. The shine was taken off me when gossip said that I was Richards lover, and then Richard demeaned Cecily too by condemning her to a lowly marriage.
She claims now that it was never consummated, now she says that she does not regard it, that Mother will have it annulled; but presumably she is Lady Scrope, the wife of a defeated Yorkist, and when we are restored to our royal titles and become princesses again, she will have to retain his name and her humiliation, even if no-one knows where Ralph Scrope is today. You know, I should be king, ten-year-old Edward says, tugging at my sleeve.
Im next, arent I? I turn to him. No, Teddy, I say gently. You cannot be king. Its true that you are a boy of the House of York and Uncle Richard once named you as his heir; but he is dead now, and the.
I hear my voice quaver as I say he is dead, and I take a breath and try again. Richard is dead, Edward, you know that, dont you?

You understand that King Richard is dead? And you will never be his heir now.
He looks at me so blankly that I think he has not understood anything at all, and then his big hazel eyes fill with tears, and he turns and goes back to copying his Greek alphabet on his slate. I stare at his brown head for a moment and think that his dumb animal grief is just like mine. Except that I am ordered to talk all the time, and to smile all the day.
He cant understand, Cecily says to me, keeping her voice low so his sister Maggie cannot hear. Weve all told him, over and over again. Hes too stupid to believe it. I glance at Maggie, quietly seating herself beside her brother to help him to form his letters, and I think that I must be as stupid as Edward, for I cannot believe it either. One moment Richard was marching at the head of an invincible army of the great families of England; the next they brought us the news that he had been beaten, and that three of his trusted friends had sat on their horses and watched him lead a desperate charge to his death, as if it were a sunny day at the joust, as if they were spectators and he a daring rider, and the whole thing a game that could go either way and was worth long odds.
I shake my head. If I think of him, riding alone against his enemies, riding with my glove tucked inside his breastplate against his heart, then I will start to cry; and my mother has commanded me to smile.
So we are going to London! I say, as if I am delighted at the prospect.
To court! And we will live with our Lady Mother at Westminster Palace again, and be with our little sisters Catherine and Bridget again. The two orphans of the Duke of Clarence look up at this. But where will Teddy and me live? Maggie asks. Perhaps you will live with us too, I say cheerfully. I expect so. Anne cheers, and Maggie tells Edward quietly that we will go to London, and that he can ride his pony all the way there from Yorkshire like a little knight at arms, as Cecily takes me by the elbow and draws me to one side, her fingers nipping my arm.
And what about you? Is the king going to marry you? Is he going to overlook what you did with Richard? Is it all to be forgotten? I dont know, I say, pulling away. And as far as we are concerned, nobody did anything with King Richard. You, of all people, my sister, would have seen nothing and will speak of nothing.
As for Henry, I suppose whether he is going to marry me or not is the one thing that we all want to know. But only he knows the answer. Or perhaps two people: Visit www.
