Richard III Reburial Cortege - Arrival at Leicester Cathedral
March 23, 2015
The remains of Richard III were discovered in 2012 under a council car park in Leicester. Their authenticity was confirmed with a DNA test matched to his closest living relative - Canada born Michael Ibsen - now a cabinet maker living in London. King Richard's remains were always thought to have been thrown into a river running though Leicester, so the discovery of his skeleton under the car park were a surprise to experts and public alike.
After a high court battle between the cities of York and Leicester over his remains , the city of Leicester won the right to his remains. On 22 March 2015, the coffin was carried from Leicester University, through the village of Bosworth where he was killed on the battlefield and on to his final resting place in Leicester Cathedral. The final part of the route was by horse drawn carriage. This gallery shows the activity around the Cathedral on the day and of the arrival of the cortege there at 5:40pm.
