In 1531 the clergy were collectively accused of praemunire, and forced to admit the King was the head of the English church. The King was actually head of the church by 1553.
1532 was the start of the break from Rome and by 1553, Northumberland and Cranmer made sure that England was as far away from Papal supremacy as possible. Especially with the 1552 Common Prayer Book removing catholic ceremonies.
It's pretty difficult to find similarities though as the major changes didn't happen until 1534, but 1532 was the start of the radical changes implemented under Edward VI
