Elizabeth’s and Mary’s feelings towards each other?

Full question - "What were Elizabeth's and Mary's (her sister)feelings towards each other? Was there ever any sisterly affection between them?"
Yes, it is said that they were actually quite close when they were growing up, particularly when Catherine Parr was Queen, and they were protective of their brother, Edward. Although some believe that Mary was antagonistic to Elizabeth from the start, most now believe that this is untrue and that she looked after her little sister and was very affectionate. Obviously this all changed later with all the plots to replace Mary with Elizabeth and also because of their religious differences.
