Catherine & Anne @ Hever Castle
8 February 2023 - 10 November 2023
For centuries Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn have been pitted against each other as love rivals with their differences celebrated. This exhibition, Queens, Rivals, Mothers, showcases the similarities between Catherine & Anne and through new research shows that Catherine owned the very same copy of the prayer book that Anne had.
The 1527 prayer book belonging to Catherine of Aragon is available for visitors to see alongside the 1527 Book of Hours, which belonged to Anne Boleyn. For the first time in 500 years two prayer books belonging to two of Henry VIII’s wives are reunited and displayed together.
