Question from Mary the Quene - Reading of the charges against George Boleyn

My question is regarding the reading of the charges against George Boleyn during his trial.

He (George Boleyn) was instructed to NOT read aloud the statements he and his sister allegedly made concerning the virility of Henry VIII.
In a swipe at the powers railroading him towards the scaffold, George Boleyn intentionally, and in a clear loud voice, spoke the comments for alllllll those courtiers and ghoulish court-haunters to hear.

Does anybody know if Henry VIII learned that his shame had been made ever so public?
