From a young age, she desired to become a court lady and officially succeeded when she was appointed a maid of honor to Anne of Cleves. She later helped get her best friend, Beatrice Townhill, a position as well. On 26 April 1540, she married a courtier, named Francis Knollys.

After her husband's death, Katherine agreed to marry Henry as she felt it was her duty. Katherine and Henry were together until his death in January 1547.
