Wow! What an act by Henry VIII. I am sure all the Probus members who witnessed this memorable performance of the King in full costume were astounded by the way our national history was presented. Most of us, I am sure, will have forgotten our country’s past which we were taught at school a long time ago but now we will remember our audience with “His Majesty “. This time we learnt that all the wives of Henry VIII were distantly related to him; why he divorced or executed so many of his wives and the trouble he went through hoping to create a male heir that lived. ‘Henry’s costume cost £3000 and our presenter has two, one here and one in the United States where he regularly travels to, spending a month at a time, teaching the Americans their real history!
