Mary and Elizabeth might have some things in common: They’re both royalty. They’re related. They both know how to rock a corset. But when it comes to fertility, it seems they’re nothing alike.
After watching Mary struggle (and fail) to get pregnant for seasons now, EW has an exclusive Reign sneak peek that reveals not only that Elizabeth is pregnant, but that she’s pregnant with Robert Dudley’s child. But unlike Mary, Elizabeth hadn’t been trying to conceive, which means she now has a huge decision to make: She can’t risk her life with a procedure to end the pregnancy — she is the queen, after all — but she also can’t marry Dudley considering that he’s already married.
