Arriving at court!!!

Post by Anna of Iceland on Wed Jan 03, 2018 8:47 pm



As a royal carriage with about ten guards and a few ladies on horses ride along the carriage with the Iceland flag waving in the breeze. Anna looked out of the carriage thinking what the kingdom of England holds for her. Yes her brother sent letters out the all the courts to tell of her arrival to the courts and the first court was to be England. As the carriage pulled up the castle she quickly put her head back into the carriage. She wondered who might be waiting for her and her ladies and guards that her father sent with her.

I had dressed and i head down to the courtyard with some courtiers and my daughter.

I saw Anna's great carriage and saw her get out.
I gently kiss her hand.
"Welcome my lady to England and to my court. This is Whitehall my lady. I trust you had a safe journey?" I said as i looked into her eyes and the rumours were true about her being beautiful and i was certain i could find her a husband.

Anna and her court bowed and curtsy low to the king. "I send wishes from my brother the king and my mother the mother queen of Iceland." She said softly to the king.

I pour the wine and hand her a glass and as i take my seat i see she had lowered her hood and i suddenly thought about the rumours of her beauty.
"You are very pretty my lady i am sure any unmarried noble would not hesitate in marrying you."
"Do you like the wine my dear? It is made from the grapes grown at my own grapevine at Hampton Court?

I get up from my chair.
"You must excuse me my lady for i must get ready for the feast we are having in your honour in the great Hall at 7.
My squire will show you to your chambers where ladies will be waiting for you".
I smile and kiss her hand.
