During the EventEdit

At first Mary is at the wedding when she is approached by Colin who is observed by a jealous Lola. When Colin hands Mary a glass of wine she is reminded that she was told by Clarissa not to drink the wine so she puts the cup down. When Mary sees that Lola is disappointed she takes Lola, Kenna, Greer and Aylee to the dance floor where they dance around in a circle. While dancing Mary is observed by both Sebastian and Francis. She shares a glance with Bash when Francis turns around to see his fiancée and brother looking at each other there is a hint of jealousy. When feathers begin to fall from the ceiling Mary has a flashback of her and Francis playing with feathers as children she quickly looks at him and they share a glance. Mary is then quickly joined by her ladies-in-waiting to which Kenna expresses her curiosity about the consummation. She convinced the girls to sneak into a joining room where they could watch Philip II and Elisabeth consummate their marriage. Afterwards, Lola runs off to look for Colin, Kenna finds her way to a secluded stair case where she runs into King Henry, and Mary goes off to talk to Francis. Later that night Colin entered Mary's room in attempt to rape her, and take her virtue which would make her unfit to be the future Queen of France.
