The English Ambassador has sent to communicate to me by his Secretary a letter written to him by the Queen's principal secretary in the name of her Majesty, in which she tells him that she had resolved to take for her husband the Archduke Charles, seeing him to be of her religion; but I am assured from another quarter that this project is at an end, and that Lord Robert is in greater favour than ever with Queen Elizabeth; and I have been told by a person who is well advised about things in England, that the love her Majesty bears Lord Robert is such that she will either finally take him for husband, or will never take anyone else.
