Sample Text

Let’s Meet Elizabeth I

Interviewer:    Ah, Good Queen Bess (pauses) or should that be Great Lioness!

Elizabeth:        ‘Your Majesty’ will do nicely!

(Adding coquettishly) Though you can call me Elizabeth!

Interviewer:    You always did have a way with the men! All those suitors you kept dangling!

Elizabeth:        With very good reason! I was wedded to my kingdom!

Interviewer:    You remain a great symbol of true British patriotism! No wonder your people loved you!

Elizabeth:        And I them. As I said in that great speech I made at Tilbury “I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king and a king of England, too”.

Interviewer:    Every bit as strong as your father, Henry VIII.

Elizabeth:        Yes, I liked to model myself on his strengths.

Interviewer:    Admirable, how you loved him – given what happened to your mother!

Elizabeth:        Indeed. Depriving me of my mother before I’d even reached three years old.

Interviewer:    Sending her to the block and proving himself to be anything but a warm, loving father.

Elizabeth:        It’s true, I hardly saw him.

Interviewer:    And then to live in fear of your life under Mary’s reign.
