Poor little Princess Anne. She's had such bewildering changes in her life in the last month or so. She's left the only home she ever knew, she's got a new brother in whose care she has been placed and, instead of leading a quiet life in the nursery of Hever Castle, she has a large, beautiful apartment at court and a household of attendants to wait on her hand and foot. Now, on top of all that, one of her new sisters is hostile towards her.
It'll be interesting to see how she copes when she's introduced to court formalities, issues of precedence, etc. Two wouldn't be too soon to start her training in that respect so how will she react if, for example, Lady Boleyn needs to practice her curtsey with her so she can observe the formalities around the King.
I like the look at Henry as a protective older brother. Anne is a Godsend for him in many ways. She's so little and helpless that he needs to keep her needs in mind, which means that he's not going to be as self-centred. She also gives him something to occupy him, which is good because, given that his bride won't be arriving for at least five years, he could end up running a little too wild if he had too much time on his hands.
Nice job with this chapter.

I cant wait to see what Henry does with Mary and if her attitude will change towards Anne

I love this story! You could have Jane or Princess Mary turn out to actually BE a witch. Or add in another plot to destroy Anne or even Henry.

Wait I am confused so Anne Boleyn will not be married to Henry in this instead will his sister?

I bet that little Princess Anne is an absolute cutie-pie, with big blue eyes and a mop of dark hair.
So sad that her father rejected her like that, over something that she couldn't possibly have helped, but at least he came clean about her existence before he died, so Henry could find her.
It'll be interesting to see how the people react to the news that the last child of their late King and Queen was alive all this time, but kept hidden away with no contact from her family.
Anne's return to court should be interesting. She's only two, which is a fairly adaptable age but she's spent her short life with the Boleyns, with Sir Thomas and Lady Elizabeth as her parents, not to mention two foster siblings not much older than she is. Now she's going to be a royal child, with her own household, and her nearest sibling in age is more than a decade her senior. It'll be a lot to get used to.
I actually felt a little bad for Katherine when she was married off to Brandon. For a Princess of Spain, who expected to be Queen of England, it's a very humble match, even taking his new title of Duke of Suffolk into account. It must seem like all the years she spent in England as Arthur's widow, waiting for Henry to marry her, but if she gives him a chance, I'd say that she could be happy with him. There'll definitely be less pressure to produce children, since any children of the marriage won't have an succession rights to the English throne but I'd say that Princess Mary could be trouble.
I hope you update soon, and show how Henry manages in terms of making arrangements Anne's nursery at court, as well as the task of overseeing it, when he has no royal lady in his family of an age to be entrusted with the task at court.
