Queen Elizabeth is described by contemporaries as a very handsome woman and of great ability, as beloved, as a woman of the greatest charity and humanity. There seems, indeed, good reason to suppose that she was an admirable and wholly acceptable spouse in the king’s eyes. Certainly they shared fully in the social life of the court, both formal and informal, gave each other little presents, and generally gave the impression of a happy married life. Very few evidences survive of displays of affection by the couple, but it is not to be expected that there would be. This dearth, however, is more than compensated for by the [anecdote] of what happened when news of the death of Prince Arthur was brought to court.
