    This must have been disappointing but Anne could not be received as a Queen when she was still his mistress. Marguarite and Eleanor could not accept her, the latter as she was the neice of Katherine of Aragon and Margarite as she recalled Anne Boleyn as a mere lady at the court of Queen Claude. Anne may be educated but she was still in the service of Katherine for several years, she was not Henry’s wife, for Marguarite, Anne was not good enough. Without these ladies being able to receive Anne, it was better for her to remain behind and entertain Francis I on English soil in Calais.
