King Richard III Reburial Procession in Leicester Sunday 22nd March 2015

Sunday 22nd March 2015 saw the Mortal remains of 
King Richard III processed on a Gun Carraige through the streets of Leicester prior to his Re-Burial in Leicester Cathedral.

I was fortunate to have an excellent opportunity to view the procession as it came to St Nicholas Church. This church was where the King said his last Mass before the Battle of Bosworth. The cortege arrived by Hearse, then was taken inside for a short service before being carried out and placed carefully onto a Gun Carriage. Horse-Riders in Armour led the King off on his last journey through the streets, as white roses were thrown at the coffin, an emblem of the House of York.
