He did not sound very committed to say whether those bones should be worthy of a Catholic Mass.
I think that the Spirit of Richard wants his self respect again and this whole charade has done little to respect Richard III.
The worst offenders are the people that say that they are historians and have qualifications to prove this, probably in Shakesphere Richard III.
Its time to put that miff to sleep and where ever Richard's bones are can rest in peace.

I went to see the site of the dig and the Cathedral just before Christmas. The Cathedral is a large building, but at the same time, has a rather welcoming and homely atmosphere, a very suitable place for a king to lie, especially one who did so much for ordinary people in his short reign.

If the remains of the Greyfriars Warrior are confirmed to be those of Richard III, it provides an excellent opportunity to develop a visitor centre in Leicester which could shed more light on this period of English history. Hopefully, too, the fact that Richard's bones have been found will provide the impetus for greater study of both him as a knight, an administrator and then as king.

Exactly. There's so much speculation as to what happened to the princes because there is no evidence - either in Richard's favour or against.

There has always been a group of people who will swear that Richard III is guilty. This is despite no evidence to back this up. by the same token, there are those who maintain his innocence, again, despite no evidence to back this up.

Worthless debate.

Interesting isn't it that a king who reigned for around two years, over 500 years ago still can create such passionate pros and antis in the 21st century.

If you are a 'pro' - there have been more saintly kings and princes....

If you are an 'anti' - there have been many more terrible tyrants and murderers...

Yet Richard III has attracted passionate followers on both sides for the last couple of hundred years out of all proportion to the length of his reign or the events which have (or are alleged to have) occurred
