On May 7th, Queen Anne Boleyn's chaplain Lord Latymer was stopped, questioned and searched on his travels - which was not surprising, seeing as almost everyone who had anything to do with the Queen was being confronted by Cromwell's men. However, Latymer was in a potentially dangerous position because, as the Queen's chaplain and religious advisor he frequently brought her Protestant and Lutheran books - which would have been seen as heretical and could have gotten him in serious trouble whilst being searched. Luckily for him, he was not carrying any of those books at that time and was allowed to continue on his way.
By May 8th, men and nobles at court were well-aware of the goings-on in the Tower and the status of the Queen and the men who had been arrested with her. Most of these men held the opinion that the imprisoned would suffer death and surely never regain their titles and honors at court, so the competition for increased royal favor and status began. Namely, the King's illegitimate son Henry FitzRoy, the Duke of Richmond was actively pursuing a higher degree of favor at court, being convinced that the Queen and her alleged lovers would face the headsman's axe soon. Other men, of course joined FitzRoy and placed themselves under the King's nose, as well as moving their things to the more sought-after rooms and positions. In this way, these men were effectively taking the accused men's places before they were even dead.
At the same time, of course the Seymours were perhaps the highest noble family at court, effectively knocking the Boleyn's out of their way. Everyone seemed quite sure of what was going to happen, though surprisingly there were quite a few people who sided with Anne Boleyn and did not understand nor agreed with why she was still imprisoned.
And now we get to the ninth of May 1536. On this day, King Henry VIII called a meeting with Thomas Cromwell, whom had so far been successful in bringing the Queen and her family down. The King wanted to discuss keeping himself, his throne, and his subjects safe and in a state of tranquility during this tumultuous time for the English court. The councils at Whitehall and Hampton Court met for the day to discuss the management of peace in the King's domain, and the removal of anything and anyone who threatened it -- Could they have been blatantly referring to the Queen??
The meetings also scheduled and ordered for the sheriffs in London to organize the grand jury for the next day, in order to rule on the offences placed at both of the palaces, regarding the Queen and the men imprisoned with her. King Henry VIII was the ringleader in these meetings and orders - He certainly knew everything that was happening and was acting on it shockingly quickly and aggressively. At this point, we can assume he just wanted his wife completely out of the picture.
Remember, at this time Anne had been in the Tower for a week, though she had not formally had her trial - so she had not been officially sentenced to death. We can only imagine what she was thinking at this time. Did she have any inkling that she would die? Surely she could not have known that it would happen in just ten days, and that the men accused with her would die in only eight days.
