Queen Elizabeth once defended her mother's reputation to a Foreign Ambassador, and in 1575 she had a ring made which contained a picture of herself and her mother. She must have mentioned her mother to have had this made! You can see this remarkable ring here. Statements like "never talked" have to be treated with caution. Just because the official records might not mention that Elizabeth spoke of her mother, does not mean that she never did!
