Jane Seymour's Ghost

Another ghost at Hampton Court Palace is that of Jane Seymour. She has been seen walking around the Clock Court and on the anniversary of the day that she gave birth to Edward VI, the former Queen's ghost is said to haunt the castle. Jane is said to ascend the stairs that leads to the Silver Stick Gallery, holding a candle in her hand and wearing a white gown. Some say that she is looking for her son whom she never got to see grow up.

According to legend, Jane is tormented with a heavy conscience and strong feelings of guilt over the part she played in Anne Boleyn's downfall. Therefore she will not find peace before Anne has forgiven her - something that apparently has not happened yet.
