The Other Queen - 1570, January, Tutbury Castle: Bess - Philippa Gregory

This quote was added by user749735
My husband the earl comes home from London in tight-lipped silence. He is as white as if he was suffering from an attack of the gout again. When I ask him if he is ill, he shakes his head in silence. I see then that he has taken a deep wound to his pride. The queen has humiliated him before the other nobility. She could have done nothing worse to this rightly haughty man than imply that he cannot be trusted; and this is what she has done to him.
