Can you imagine anyone less likely to look like Richard III?

LOL! Well, it's no worse than him playing Alan Turing in 'The Imitation Game'!

Further DNA research confirms Richard's identity and says that he probably had blue eyes and possibly blonde hair:

The public are to be allowed to attend the re-interment service in Leicester Cathedral next March:

I just dowsed the site where Richard 3rd was found, and to the right a very short distance is a very old Sacred Site close to 4000 years old, where Im sure the Grey Friars built the first buildings of worship in this area on this special site. No wonder Richards body would have been placed close to here, its a powerful place where the very rich and powerful would have been buried, along with the Grey Friars of rank...And I think to the west of here is a lost Stone where in the past from the Grey Friars buildings/Church, the Sun would have set at another smaller Sacred Site now part of an estate, I forget the Stones name.

Very interesting the Sacred Site can be dowsed in some of the pictures of the car park, and the grave site picture, Im sure this was why he was buried here, at a very special place in the Church grounds.
