The Royal Seal

HAMLET-ONT1W4

How did Hamlet manage to make his forged letter seem like an official conveyance from the king?

A

He happened to find a royal signet in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s bag with which to seal his forged letter.

B

He happened to have his father’s royal signet in his pocket, which he used to seal his forged letter.

C

The pirates happened to have a variety of royal signets aboard their ship, so Hamlet located the Danish signet and used it to seal his forged letter.

D

He happened to fashion a convincing fake signet with the help of his natural artistic skills.

E

He carefully lifted the wax from the letter and reattached it with a gluey substance he happened to find aboard the ship to make the letter appear uncompromised.
