Not every aspect of Henry VIII's life can be examined fully in Henry VIII's article, nor should it, or it would become unwieldy. There is a lot of interest in the heirs (and lack thereof) of Henry VIII, and this article gives the reader that information clearly and concisely - I can see nothing of use to the reader in deleting this/leaving it as a redirect. As a topic, it has been the subject of books by two very well-known historians. If you think the article needs improving, please do so or leave it - but having it means that readers can see all information on this notable topic together clearly.

Quick comments from me, since I was asked for a third opinion:
I'm not an expert on Henry VIII, but I imagine there is probably a fair bit of detail that could go into an article on his children that might not fit well in the main article on Henry, given the academic work into infertility etc. As it stands, it is a bit minimalist though. I tend to find myself on the "inclusionist" side of the argument in cases like this; personally, I wouldn't have created the article anew as it is, but since it's here, I wouldn't push for it to be deleted either.
