Henry Machyn in Hampton Court Palace, Richmond Upon Thames - 22 April, 1555
The twenty-second day of April, being St. George's Day, at Hampton Court, the King (about whom waited the heralds) with other lords and knights of the Garter went in their robes on procession with three crosses and clerks and priests and my lord chancellor. The chief minister mitered and all they in copes of cloth of tissue and gold singing Salve festa dies as they went about. The Queen's Grace looked out of a casement that hundreds did see Her Grace after she had taken her chamber. And heralds going about the King's Grace.
