Question from Rachel - Tudor necklaces


I have seen the Kathryn Howard portrait gallery suggesting that Kathryn and Jane Seymour were wearing the same necklace. The necklace in the Mary Tudor/ Charles Brandon portrait looks similar. Is it possibly the same necklace, or was it just a popular style?

Question from Sara - Thomas Seymour's supporters


I have another question, this time about Thomas Seymour. I know that he attempted to kidnap Edward VI in 1549, but I read in Alison Weir's "The Children of Henry VIII" that he had his supporters with him at the moment he broke into Edward's rooms. Just who were his supporters?
