Henry expected Elizabeth to be a boy because he was convinced that God would bless his new marriage and that the lack of a son and heir before was because his marriage to Catherine was contrary to God's laws. I haven't read anywhere of him actually pressurising Catherine but she would have felt the pressure nonetheless because she was queen and that was her job.

I'm glad you like the site 🙂
