Thank you for sharing @snokitty. :flower:

Little Henrik and Athena are adorable children, I love Athena's coat. Athena seems to be quite a serious little girl. Perhaps she's one of those children who prefers to watch rather than get stuck in.

Stories of the Stuarts: Treaty of Berwick 1586
The Treaty of Berwick was a peace treaty signed by envoys of King James VI of Scotland and Queen Elizabeth I of England in 1586. The main terms of this treaty outlined the friendship between England and Scotland and the support they would give each other against Catholic aggressors as well as the promise of the English throne for James upon the death of Elizabeth.

The envoys in question were Edward Manners, 3rd Earl of Rutland, for England and Francis Stuart, Earl of Bothwell, for Scotland though negotiations had begun months before the treaty was signed in July 1586. Thomas Randolph, an English diplomat, had ventured to Scotland in February 1586 to begin negotiations on the proposed articles. Though the treaty was initially opposed by the French ambassador, the Baron d’Esneval, the agreement was helped by the banishing of James Stewart, Earl of Arran.

After a week’s worth of meetings at the Tolbooth in Berwick-upon-Tweed, the Treaty of Berwick was finally signed.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is at the most northerly tip of Northumberland and its great Elizabethan walls were initially built to keep invading Scots from entering the town. In its history the town has changed hands between England and Scotland an astounding thirteen times and really does live up to its nickname as ‘The Border Town’. The town was founded as an Anglo-Saxon settlement during the phase of the Kingdom of Northumbria.
Well their source told them something for them to want a clarification from Uncle Gary. I can see why Gary would want to deny it but he should have denied it to the reporter instead of just throwing something out there on twitter.   :shrug:
