YMMV / Young Royals

  • Tear Jerker: In Mary, Bloody Mary, Mary and her mother Catherine are forbidden to meet or even write to one another, as Henry does not want to risk the chance of a rebellion being raised to restore them to their former titles. When Catherine dies, Mary is not even allowed to attend the funeral. Chapuys, the ambassador from Catherine's home country of Spain, manages to smuggle a letter of farewell from the mother to the daughter. Not only is the letter itself a massive Tear Jerker, but Mary can't even keep it - she has to burn it rather than risk it being stolen by one of Queen Anne's spies.
