When and where did Henry VIII meet Catherine of Aragon?
In 1501 when the Princess came over from Spain to marry his brother Arthur.
Katherine of Aragon was first married to Arthur (Henry's older brother and the heir apparent to the throne of their father, Henry VII), but Arthur died on April 2, 1502, only about 5 months after his marriage.
King Henry VII, in an effort to keep up the Spanish - English alliance that had been so strengthened by Katherine and Arthur's (brief) marriage, promised Henry VIII in marriage to Katherine on June 23, 1503, (when Henry VIII was about 11 years old) to take effect on June 28, 1505 (Henry VIII's 15th birthday - Katherine was about 5 years older than he).
However, they did not wed until June 11, 1509, shortly after Henry VIII became king (12 days before his June 23 coronation) on the death of Henry VII.
King Henry VIII was the youngest son of two who succeeded his brother, Prince Arthur, the Prince of Wales, who died at a premature age at fifteen, shortly after his marriage to his wife, Catherine of Aragon, the Princess of Spain.

Henry VIII's most famous outing was most likely the Field of the Cloth of Gold, in 1520, where Henry VIII went to meet Francis I. The kings tried to outdo each other in sport, beaty and wealth. This outing was politically useless and nearly bankrupted England's treasury. I sincerely hope that this helps.

Henry VIII never executed anyone in person nor was Hampton Court a place of execution in Henry's time. State executions were carried out at the Tower of London. Henry's wives Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard were executed there. Hampton Court is best known for the execution of Charles 1 on 30 January 1649 having been found guilt of "treason" by Parliament. Charles stepped out of a window at the Banqueting House to meet his end.
