Anne Boleyn’s Book of Hours at Hever Castle with Claire Ridgway

As many will know, Claire Ridgway has been at Hever Castle, Kent, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn. It was a very special day and we have an exclusive video ... Claire was able to interview Owen Emmerson from the castle and also to HOLD both of Anne Boleyn's books of hours!

We hope that this video shows just how incredible this experience was - thank you to all the staff at Hever castle for making this possible.

    I’m crying just thinking of how special of a moment this for you. I’d be crying if I was there myself. Thank you so much for sharing!
