Mary Tudor's mother comes to King Henry not long before he dies and she tells him of her sorrow of his treatment at times of their daughter.We see how Henry loved Mary, then how she weeps thinking back over parts of her life.
Mary Tudor a child loved by her parents King Henry Tudor and Queen Katherine. Then she is taken from her mother, her life changes.
Later her father takes a new Queen and wants Mary to recognise her even though her own mother lives, she must also recognise she is now illegitimate. Mary will not so she is forbidden to communicate with her mother.
Mary's mother dies, she feels all alone and unloved.
She weeps for her loss. Her friend the ambassador Eustace from Spain tells her soon Anne Boleyn will be dead. But to add a further blow her father wants her also now to denounce her religious faith for his new church she must recognise her father as head of or she could die. She signs the document later reluctantly as Eustace promises her papal absolution for what she has signed.
Then the new kind, loving Queen Jane Seymour (also of Catholic faith) reconciles Mary with her Father as a surprise for the King. He tells Mary she is now safe with his protection.
