Hastings was educated alongside the future Edward VI, and the two men remained close as adults. In 1553, Hastings married Catherine Dudley, daughter of the Duke of Northumberland, whose sister-in-law was Lady Jane Grey. When Queen Mary succeeded to the throne after Jane's brief reign, this alliance caused Hastings to be imprisoned in the Tower of London. After his release he continued to be a supporter of Mary and then of Elizabeth I.
