When Henry and Katherine Howard are sitting together in front of the fire in the banqueting hall, his arms are resting on the chair arms, but in the next shot his hands are now clasped in front of him and Katherine's hands have moved position on the ends of her armchair.

Factual errors 

Whilst accurately showing Anne Boleyn's execution by a specially requested swordsman from France, rather than an ax, the film shows the fixing of a block to the scaffold. A block is not used in decapitations by sword.
