    • "A covert marriage must have seemed liked a policy to have very few serious risks and a number of positive advantages: this was a bride who could demonstrate Edward's commitment to evenhanded kingship, but whose family was not so grand or proud as to feel they had anything to gain by wrecking his trust."
