THERE is no grammar errors inhere. there are only meaning errors.

"would do" is more certain than " could do" , so D is more logical then E in this context. the meaning here require a possibility not a certainty.

in b and c, the meaning is that the subject dose not do the action of marrying. this is not the intended meaning.

D is most logical, simply speaking

'so that' explains purpose and thus is the correct usage here. The purpose to annul the marriage to Queen is explained in the second half.
