Fellow Anne Boleyn fan, Kimberly has just posted a great video on her blog and I just had to share it here. In it, Natalie Dormer retraces Anne’s steps in the Tower of London with historian Tom Stammers.
Natalie visits the apartments where Anne was imprisoned, sees Tudor grafitti, learns more about Anne’s behaviour and visits St Peter ad Vincula to see the tile that marks Anne Boleyn’s burial spot. It is a moving video and it’s obvious that Natalie felt a real connection to Anne.
I really hope you enjoyed it. I thought it was appropriate to post it now as we have been discussing Anne Boleyn’s execution and her final resting place.
By the way, Kimberly, who pointed out the video, is a novelist who is currently writing a novel about Anne Boleyn. If you’re interested in historical fiction (with a twist!), you should check out the first chapter on her blog – it’s excellent! She tells me that she’ll be posting the second chapter soon and I’m dying to read it – click here to read it now.
Thank you everyone for all your recent comments, emails and the questions that you’ve posted on the Q&A page. As you know, I love hearing from you all, debating and chatting about our heroine, Anne Boleyn. I’m always eager to find out more about her (that’s my quest!) so feel free to add your knowledge as comments on pages and posts. Thanks!
