Who initially arranged for Mary to possibly marry King Henry VIII's son, Prince Edward?

Henry VIII.  You should read Antonia Fraser's terrific biography of MQS. Her last few childhood years in Scotland are referred to as "England's Rough Wooing."

Her second husband also had a claim to the British throne.  He was also a grandchild of Margaret Tudor.  Her biggest mistake after having her son, and having her husband murdered.  Was marrying the third husband the man who murdered her second husband.  She had twin stillborn daughters from this marriage.

July 24th, 1567 Claude Nau reported she miscarried twins.  May 1567 she married James Hepburn 12 weeks after her second husband was murdered.  Her son gave the lords an excuse to force her to abdicate and get rid of her. Being stupid enough to marry the man who killed her husband lost her throne, her getting involved in a plot to kill Elizabeth lost her head.

Interesting story on the symbolism in Elizabeth I portraits

Analysing the symbolism in the Armada Portrait
Pearls
Pearls symbolise Elizabethís chastity and connect her to Cynthia, the Greek goddess of the Moon, who was a virgin and therefore seen as 'pure'.

Mermaid
Mermaids tempt sailors and then ruin them, so the inclusion of a mermaid here could show Elizabethís might against the Spanish seamen.

Globe
The Globe represents Englandís striving for imperial power in the Americas. In the painting, Elizabeth is pointing to Virginia, which was named after her.

 Hair, ruff, and embroidery
The circle of ruff extends from Elizabethís face like the Sunís rays. She is shown as the centre and source of warmth, beauty, and goodness.

Colour scheme
Black and white was Elizabethís key colour scheme and symbolise chastity and constancy.

Sea scenes
In the Armada Portrait, Elizabeth faces toward the calm seas on her right and turns away from the stormy waters where the Spanish ships are floundering. She is positioned as a calm force for good, in contrast with the chaos of Catholic Europe.
