Dress


Dr John Aylmer, who was once Lady Jane Grey’s tutor, described in his book, ‘A Harbour for Faithful Subjects’, how Jane was sent gold cloth by Mary. This was to wear at the court visit of Mary of Guise, but Jane did not want to wear it, as it went against the dresscode favoured by those of the Protestant faith.
