Even though the court was already being lied to they believed her and sent her on her way back to jail after two simple words. “no, sir,” (1148).

Make sure that neither her nor her family would be able to recognize him and give, the police, a clue as to his whereabouts. But, maybe, he didn’t have to do it.

I think this isn’t because, the ghost of the king said, “Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature” is meaning he did some bad stuff when he was alive that he is not proud of (DOC.A).

There are many reasons as to why Prince Hamlet feels the need to deceive King Claudius. When King Hamlet’s ghost approaches Prince Hamlet in Act I, he soon finds out that he, along with many others, were lied to about his father’s death.
