Do not play into their hands. Our hatred is precisely what they hope for. I know your heart has more within it than the men who counsel you.

Queen Mary lived in France from the time she was five until she was eighteen, and her mother Mary of Guise was French. She likely spoke with a French accent. Her Scottish realm would have spoken three languages - Broad Scots, Scottish Gaelic and Norn (related to Norwegian and Danish). The latest Scottish king recorded as able to speak Gaelic was James IV. Gaelic was spoken in the Highlands and northern & western parts of the Lowlands in Mary's reign. There is no evidence she could speak Norn, which was from Orkney & Shetland. She could however speak Broad Scots, which was spoken in the big towns and much of the Lowlands, and which was mutually intelligible with English to some extent.
