A proper burial for a King 500 years later. Richar III




The service to mark the reburial of King Richard III has taken place at Leicester Cathedral.


The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Rev Justin Welby, presided over the service with local senior clergy and representatives of world faiths.


Sophie, Countess of Wessex and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester were among the guests.


Actor Benedict Cumberbatch, a distant relation of the king, read a poem by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.


During the service, The Rt Rev Tim Stevens, Bishop of Leicester, said: "People have come in their thousands from around the world to this place of honour, not to judge or condemn but to stand humble and reverent.



"From car park to cathedral...Today we come to give this King, and these mortal remains the dignity and honour denied to them in death."
