Gertrude Act 1 scene 2
''Good Hamlet, cast thy nighted color off, and let thine eye look like a friend on Denmark. Do not forever with thy vailed lids seek for thy noble father in the dust. Thou know'st 'tis common. All that lives must die, passing through nature of eternity.''
Gertrude Act 2 scene 2
''..I beseech you instantly to visit my too much changed son. Go, some of you, and bring these gentleman where Hamlet is.''
Gertrude Act 3 scene 1
''I shall obey you, and for your part, Ophelia,I do wish that your good beauties be the happy cause of Hamlet's wildness. So shall I hope your virtues will bring him to his wonted way again, to both your honors.''
''Madam, I wish it may.''
When Queen Gertrude and King Claudius were wed, Gertrude spoke to Hamlet about his father's death, and how it comes so naturally to everyone in the circle of life. That he should not mourn and be happy to move forward and show all Denmark what a strong prince Hamlet is. Gertrude could not see how hard Hamlet was trying to show his real depressed emotions. Gertrude tries to help the best she thought, but it wasn't enough. I think Gertrude should have understood and patience to listen to where Hamlet was coming from.
Gertrude is really concerned about her son being mad and what he's up to. Gertrude starts to catch on and understand that the obvious reason Hamlet is upset is because of how his father died and the quick marriage she had. She listens to Polonius about how he thinks that Hamlet is turning mad because of heartbreak from Ophelia. Then the Queen starts thinking that it may be that reason. She is overall worried about hers on and it shows she cares about Hamlet.
Here we start seeing that Gertrude is hoping that Ophelia is the cause of all of Hamlet's madness. She thinks that is will be easy for Hamlet to recover from a heartbreak like that and be friends among themselves. Queen Gertrude has a lot of faith in Ophelia to help with this mess. Everyone is going to hide behind somewhere while Ophelia tries to talk things out with Hamlet. The Queen just wants to help Hamlet and she's trying to figure out without Hamlet knowing.
