Windy, wet and 11 degrees for tomorrow. People can pooh pooh the significance, but the turnout has been impressive so far.

Not that I would have wanted to be a player at the time, but I would have loved to be a fly on the walls of leaders at this time. Fascinating.

Well said Sir. Well said indeed.

Not sure if I'll be able to watch any of the Funeral live, as the World Figure Skating Championships are being livestreamed here in Canada and it'll be going on the exact same time as the Funeral. Sigh...Oh how I hate it when two of my passions conflict like this!!!

From Reburial TImetable Archives - King Richard III in Leicester -
on Friday 27th,
"1800 – 2200 Leicester Glows: Fire Garden and Cathedral Illuminations: A free event, open to the public will take place in and around Jubilee Square & Cathedral Gardens, culminating in a firework display from the Cathedral roof."
which strikes me as, um, an incongruous kind of event in the circumstances?

After more than 500 years shrouded in mystery, buried in anonymous grave discovered beneath a car park, Richard III has finally been laid to rest 'in the heart' of the country.

A coffin containing the Plantagenet monarch's mortal remains was taken to Leicester Cathedral to receive a royal burial this morning as the Queen paid tribute to the last English king to die in battle.

In a written message in the order of service, the Queen said: 'The reinterment of King Richard III is an event of great national and international significance.

This has been fascinating. I would go if I lived in the area, it is a once in a lifetime event. I am interested that the "flag" covering the coffin has figures in modern clothes. Perhaps I have missed it but does someone have a link to an explanation as to why? I would have thought they would have used Richard III flag.

Video:
Hollywood actor Benedict Cumberbatch is to read a specially written poem at the re-burial of Richard III. The Imitation Game star is a distant relative of the last Plantagenet king and is due to star in a forthcoming BBC television series about the monarch. His reading is happening at a Leicester Cathedral service in which the king's coffin, containing his mortal remains, is lowered into a specially made tomb of Swaledale stone inside Leicester Cathedral-

US Royal Watcher,

The Pall covering the Kings ossuary ws specially commissioned for the event, and is embroidered with figures illustrating his life, his death and the events of the rediscovery of his bones... The modern figures shown are the principal persons involved, the scientists, the descendant who supplied the DNA link, the archeologists, and Philippa Langley, the lady whose research and single minded quest lead to the [widely ridiculed] idea that he might be under a car park !

It has been fascinating to see the coverage of this historical event and I have a feeling this will reignite a lot of interest in historical royalty. Many thanks to everyone who have posted links, pictures and video.

It was certainly unique to watch the reburial of a monarch who is dead for 500 years. Some ridicule or question this event, but he is part of English history.
