Lucy describes Queen Anne’s first speech to parliament in 1702. One of her ministers described her as too clumsy and lame to be effective so expectations were low. With the help of Sarah Churchill, Anne arrived immaculately dressed and delivered an impressive speech which charmed both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
