Anne's execution was recorded and it was later shown in cinemas across Nazumbia, so was Thomas Cromwell's. Nazumbia may have been have been becoming more westernized but they still stuck to the old rules of public executions that were now were also being filmed.
Soon after Henry got a new secretary called Jane Seymour who he would arrange to have tea with after a days work.
Henry got to know Anne quite quickly and they became very good friends, but it soon went beyond just been friends.
They would spend hours together during summer in the Palace swimming pool, splashing each other and would laugh like kids.
After the two went on relaxing weekend at The Swan, a 5 star luxury hotel in the very exclusive millionaire's leisure resort Crystals that was right near Lake Everton. Henry proposed to his wife in The Swan's French Restaurant on the night before their departure.
"Oh yes, of course" she accepted immediately.
The two cried with joy and the wedding was arranged. It took place in St. Nicholas's Cathedral, which was in the centre of Brighton, and many British Cathedrals such as St. Pauls inspired the architecture of St. Nicholas's. Guests included the Royal Families of Monaco, Yugoslavia, Italy, Cambodia and Saudi Arabia however not the British as Henry was very anti them due to the fact that they used to rule his country. Also included were family and friends of Henry and Jane.
Then there was a reception back at the palace and the following day Henry and Jane set off on their honeymoon, which was on an ocean liner that went around the Caribbean and Latin America.
Jane later got pregnant and this time Henry was sure that she would have a boy.
A sequel to this is coming soon. It will be titled The Tudors in Africa: Royalty and Wartime which will be about Henry's unhappy marriage to Anne of Cleaves and with the 2nd World War raging should Henry make Nazumbia part of the Allies, the Axis or should he just keep his country neutral. Be free to post ideas for a sequel.
