Mary Queen of Scots would not have spoken English, as lowland Scotland spoke 'Scots' and Highland Scots spoke 'Scottish Gaelic. Additionally, she would not have had a Scottish accent, as her mother, Mary of Guise, was French. Queen Mary also lived in France from the time she was five until she was eighteen. She likely spoke with a French accent.
