What was Anne’s relationship with Elizabeth like?

Full question: What do you think that Anne's short relationship with Elizabeth really comprised of? - Marie

In my opinion, it consisted of real mother/daughter love. It is said that Anne tried to spend as much time with Elizabeth as possible and that she was frustrated by the fact that, as Queen, she was supposed to be somewhat distanced from Elizabeth. Anne fought for Elizabeth's right to succession and was successful in this until her marriage to Henry was annulled, and Elizabeth made illegitimate, the day before Anne's execution. Elizabeth wasn't even 3 when Anne died so I doubt she would have remembered her mother at all - very sad.
