Everyone acknowledges that Anne had foreign allure, could play instruments and sing. She had all the requisite accomplishments to be fascinating. Yet, although she returned to England in 1524, Henry did not “notice” her till 1526. Is it possible that Anne returned from France to be a maid to Mary Tudor, the French Queen? She had all the trappings of a Queen, although her marriage to Charles Brandon lowered her, she kept maids and a court. (Anne, fresh from France would have all the latest gossip.) Mary lived at the Brandon Estates, but came to court often. When Anne was noticed by Henry, she must have been new to the English court to make such an impression. How else could Anne have escaped earlier notice?
