In , when the Lancastrians briefly restored Henry VI to the throne, Edward's queen was living in London with several young daughters.
She moved with them into Westminster for sanctuary, living there in royal comfort until Edward was restored to the throne in and giving birth to their first son Edward during that time.

An animal sanctuary is a facility where animals are brought to live and be protected for the rest of their lives. Unlike animal shelters, sanctuaries do not seek to place animals with individuals or groups, instead maintaining each animal until its natural death. Plant sanctuaries are areas set aside to maintain functioning natural ecosystems, to act as refuges for species and to maintain ecological processes that cannot survive in most intensely managed landscapes and seascapes. Protected areas act as benchmarks against which we understand human interactions with the natural world.
