And the drama surrounding Richard III’s reburial continues! The latest news is that a group of people claiming to be Richard’s descendants are attempting to have Richard buried in York, on the basis of Human Rights laws. Considering Richard has been dead for over 500 years, it’s uncertain how these people believe the rights are still ascertained to him, but we’ll have to wait and see how it plays out. It remains extremely likely that Richard will actually be reburied at Leicester.
