On August 22nd, 1485, at the battle of Bosworth, King Richard III of England was killed. His body was stripped and thrown over a horse and taken through the streets to show everyone he was gone. His body was hastily buried at Greyfriars Church in Leicester. In September, 2012, his remains were found in a car park (the former site of the church), and on March 26th, 2015, he was buried with full honours at Leicester Cathedral.
I have always been a fan of this much maligned king. As a Ricardian, I do not believe Richard was responsible for the deaths of his nephews in the Tower of London. I decided to go and visit his new tomb with my husband, David, at Leicester Cathedral. It’s a lovely place and the new tomb is very fitting. I took quite a few photos while I was there (just to see if anything showed up). I always speak to spirit and ask them to show themselves if they can.
I was not disappointed. There are several graves not far from Richard’s, and I took some photos of them as well. When I looked at my photos at home, I was amazed to see what was on one of them. Richard’s face was on the grave slab:
We went outside to look at the statue of Richard. There, I captured a very strange face in a window of a building across from the cathedral (see featured image at top).
It was an amazing day and I am very happy I was able to visit. My photos of Richard were published in several national UK papers. I love capturing spirits on camera and find it very exciting to go through my photos to see who shows up on them.
Well, that’s all until next time, when I will be sharing ghost photos from my visit to the Tower of London.
