Memorial for Katharine of Aragon

On 25th January I attended a beautiful memorial service for Katharine of Aragon, Henry VIIIth’s first wife, at Peterborough Cathedral where she is buried.  This is a remarkably durable tradition, as is the maintenance of a fresh pomegranate (her symbol) on her grave.  I was delighted to see the Spanish Embassy represented and historic links recognised.
