Richard IIII's reputation restored as Queen gives royal seal of approval - Telegraph
Quote:
The reputation of Richard III has finally been restored as the much-maligned monarch was given a tribute fit for a king and even a seal of approval from the Queen.

His remains, which were discovered under a car park in Leicester in 2012, were taken back to Bosworth Field, the site of his fateful last battle, before being moved to Leicester Cathedral where the King will lie in repose until a reinterment service on Thursday.

Although the Queen will not personally attend the service, Buckingham Palace said she had written a tribute in the order of service which acknowledged Richard’s importance to British history.

The ceremony has made it onto the top of my my US Yahoo News feed. Impressive!

A truly astonishing turn out by the public along the streets of Leicester. They were throwing flowers onto the coffin all the time. It would appear the rehabilitation of Richard III, in the eyes of the public (who likely don't know very much about him really), is complete.

I have to say, though, I fail to see why this has to take several days. It's rather dragging it all out.

I thought that too, but at least people have the chance to see his coffin before he gets buried

This is normal now for a British monarch - three days 'lying in state' so the public can pay their respects.

He is being given the same treatment Elizabeth will be given - which will be about 10 days from death to funeral with at least 3 days lying in Westminster Hall with the public filing by.

Richard didn't have that in his own time so he is being given that now, even though in the middle ages they tended to bury them far more quickly.

How very touching to see the tributes of white roses laid in his path.
This is an extraordinary event, indeed.

What a great day and week for the city of Leicester and tourism,with the Easter Holidays approaching I'd imagine the cathedral and museums will get a lot of visitors .

I will definitely watch the reinterment on 26th March, although people are saying that the Queen should have sent someone "higher" than Sophie to represent her at the funeral. I was not under the impression Sophie was representing the Queen as her attendance was only announce recently, whereas the Duke of Gloucester's attendance was announced long before.

Queen Elizabeth is a direct descendant of Henry VII. So although its appropriate to have royal representation at the funeral of Richard III , I didn't expect any direct heirs to attend.

Whilst the finding of this man is fantastic, and no doubt he's getting the funeral he should have got at the time of his death had he not died in battle, albeit perhaps not in the right place But so much time has passed, there is no real need for anyone to go. The Duke of Gloucester is going in his capacity as President of the RIII society.

Richard had no 'direct' heirs so there are none to attend.

There are a number of heirs of his siblings and they are there including HRH Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester - a 17th generation nephew and namesake (although I doubt that the late Duke of Gloucester realised that opportunity would arise when they named their second son Richard.)

Interestingly he is the first to hold the title of Prince Richard since the days of Richard III and the young Prince Richard who disappeared from the Tower and now he attends the funeral of the last to be Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester.

^^^ I meant Queen Elizabeth's heirs. Charles, William. The Countess of Wessex is appropriate representation imo.

Sophie Wessex has an interest in military history so she will probably be fascinated.
