Beatrice Somerset, was invited by Queen Elizabeth to celebrate the 50-year mark of King Henry VIII's coronation.

Season 3Edit

Queen Elizabeth announced she was going to give a golden apple to the first 100 people in line during King Henry VIII's 50 Year Coronation Celebration. While Beatrice Somerset was in line, Lady Lola tried to put pearls into her purse. She broke the necklace and, in the commotion the Queen had them both arrested.

While in The Tower of London, Lola expressed a man had told her to do it. She thought it was a game between the two. Beatrice told her how she believed the Queen was behind it. Beatrice Somerset told Lady Lola the story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII. She asked Lola if she'd heard the stories, the lady who sold out her dearest friend and her infant daughter. She told those outlandish tales Anne was guilty of witchcraft and other depravities. Because everyone knew Henry wanted her gone, so to speak ill of Anne was to curry favor with the king. A chambermaid of Anne's claimed to have seen Anne and her brother George Boleyn together. But King Henry knew no one would believe it unless it came from someone like her, a close friend to Anne. He turned the screws on her family with threats and promises. After the trial, Henry awarded her The Boleyn family lands. Henry knew the chambermaid's story was a lie. The only thing Anne was ever guilty of was not having a son. She cried while adding she didn't know how often she'd wished could speak with Queen Elizabeth to explain about Anne.

Three days later, she was released from jail after she returned the lands she had been given from King Henry VIII for her help as penance.
