Le légat du Pape arrive à Londres pour se prononcer sur la légitimité du mariage de Henry et Catherine d'Aragon. Wolsey a assuré au roi que le divorce serait accordé, mais le Pape et Campeggio ne sont pas influençables. En désespoir de cause, Wolsey supplie la reine d'abdiquer, mais elle refuse. Une Cour du légat se réunit à l'église Blackfriar où Henry et Catherine vont plaider leur cause. Ce procès aura de grandes conséquences : l'avenir des relations entre Henry et Anne, la carrière de Wolsey, et les relations de l'Angleterre avec Rome. Le moment inoubliable :
La scène à la Cour du Légat, où Catherine s'adresse à Henry. Dans cet épisode, ils ont dit :
"God has given me gout. Its a great trial....if your grace had some water, perhaps laced with a bit of wine?" Cardinal Campeggio to Wolsey
"I trust you, I love you" Anne to Henry when he tells her he has to go back to Katherine's bed
"I beg that you yield to the King's will" Wolsey to Katherine on his knees
"All the world now agrees that our marriage was unjust" Henry to Katherine
"God never called me to a nunnery, I am the King's true and legitimate wife" Katherine to the legates.
"That's how its going to be. Let them Grumble" Anne's new motto on a ribbon Henry finds under her kirtle.
"Angering the prince, means death" Thomas More seeing Henry's displeasure with Wolsey
"Sir I beseech you. For all the love that has been between us. Let me have justice & right. Give me some pity & compassion for I am a poor woman & a stranger born out of your dominion. I have no friend here & little counsel. I plea to you as head of justice in this realm. I call God and all the world to witness that I have been to you a true humble and obedient wife ever compliant to your will & pleasure. I have loved all those whom you have loved for your sake whether or not I had cause. Whether they be friends or enemies. By me you have had many children. Although it has pleased God to call them from this world. But when you had me at first , I take God as my judge , I was a true maid without touch of men. And whether or not it be true, I put it to your conscience." Katherine to Henry in the Legatine Court
