English royal funeral in 2013 - 530 years late

Jump to last reply

Human remains found in a Leicester car park in autumn 2012 were claimed by geneticists today, on the basis of DNA evidence, to be those of Richard III, killed in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth.

They will now be given a proper funeral and buried in consecrated ground. The ground will probably be Leicester Cathedral: it is unclear whether the funeral will be that he would have expected (a Catholic Requiem Mass) or the rather sparser and more elegant Anglican service now conducted over the remains of British royals.

But it's likely to be another Royal spectacular to boost the tourist numbers
