Just a dumb question that's always bugged me: During Anne's execution, when the lady-in-waiting steps forward to remove her cloak, why does Anne grab her wrists and stop her for a second? Did the lady not wait for permission first? Did Anne think she was about to drop it? Did she just want a few more seconds of life? Was she trying to compose herself? What?

Sorry in advance if it's really obvious to everyone else. Confused

Oooh, now I'm going to have to watch the execution scene again as I hadn't noticed that! Perhaps Anne was trying to calm her lady??

I thought it was a gesture of comfort, because the ladies were beginning to break down at that point. I thought it was Anne signalling for them to be strong because she no longer feared death. I'll watch it again, though as its been a long time since i saw that episode.

I always thought she was trying to comfort her because all of her ladies were weeping. Almost as a “I'll be okay, no need to cry” gesture of a sort. That scene really was powerful. And still brings tears to my eyes.Cry

Thanks, everyone! I'm going with comforting her ladies.
