I like the fact how very diligent details are being carried out and with historical accuracy in the preparation of Leicester Cathedral.

That's a great graphic of the cortege route/times.

Is it possible that 5929 people went missing in Leistershire in 26 months? Is that number on par per capita with other areas of the UK? I checked and my entire state only has 99 people missing TOTAL.
"The organizers want to display 5,929 white roses, made from a variety of materials including ceramic, plastic and paper, to represent the number of people who went missing in Leicestershire in 2012-13."

About 306,000 people go missing each year in Scotland, Wales and England. Of those about 116,000 go missing more than once in the recorded time period (2012-2013.) These would include very elderly dementia-ridden men and women, youthful runaways, and people disappearing for a while from bad marriages. Not all the missing are missing for sinister reasons, (some just don't want to be found,) and different police forces use different methods of collating missing persons.

As far as Richard III is concerned, I am sorry that he will not be given a Requiem Mass. It's catering to 21st century sensibilities, IMO, to have a multi-denominational ceremony, for a man who knew nothing but the Roman Catholic tradition.

Yet another reason I love the Royal Forums - I never fail to learn new things. It turns out the US and UK count missing people very differently. In the US, we try to ignore the issue, or at least it seems that way from the abstemious way we count our missing. The UK should be proud of its transparency on this issue, again IMHO.

Week of live broadcasts of Richard III’s burial to be shown on Channel 4:

"It has been announced that Channel 4 will be following the reburial of Richard III’s remains with a number of live broadcasts of the last Plantagenet King’s re-internment later this month.

Channel 4, who were the broadcasters to produce the award-winning documentary Richard III: The King in the Car Park, and were the ones to reveal to the nation the discovery of the King’s long-lost remains, will be the only channel to show the procession of Richard’s remains live on television.
Prior to the reburial service in Leicester Cathedral on Thursday 26th March, Richard’s remains will begin a five-day journey on Sunday 22nd, where The King will be taken on a procession, following the last journey that he took before being killed at Bosworth Field in 1485.

Through three live programmes during this journey, Channel 4 will broadcast the ceremonies that will take place prior to his reburial and during the re-interment. Jon Snow, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Arthur Williams and Sonali Shah will all be presenting the three broadcasts."

Oops. They did not "share" a grave. She was buried in "a different part of the friary" and about 100 years before the King. But, yes - the dig at the friary continues.

Perhaps she was one of those noblewomen who were benefactors to the Church and Abbey. Quite a few would retire to comfortable quarters in a convent in their widowhood, but this doesn't seem to be the case here!

I wonder if we will ever find out who she was? Some have suggested its Ellen Luenor who co founded the friary with her husband Gilbert who died around 1250.

Before Richard III could have married Princess Elizabeth, would not a papal dispensation have to have been given?
The Princess, the bride, is the niece by blood and Richard, the groom, is the uncle by blood, her father's brother.
