Leicester Cathedral – Personal News

 


♛ Leicester Cathedral ♛


 
Kathrynruthd, blogger, supporter of our film-petition and follower of Mr. Armitage’s career, lives in Leicester and on her blog takes us with her on a knowledgeable tour, showing us Leicester Cathedral:
 
Fit for a King?
 
Her very personal review about the intended last resting place for King Richard III, very much gripped me.
Especially the sentence:

[…] and if he’s [King Richard III] reinterred in Leicester Cathedral, he will be made to feel welcome … very welcome.

That is what I so much wish for, that wherever he may be buried at last, that he is welcomed and treated with respect there.
 
Thank you very much, Kathrynruthd, for you wonderful presentation of Leicester Cathedral!

  • Daily Mail: Charles is dwarfed by a dwarf: How ‘servant’ Hobbit star made prince’s birthday, by Mark Duell (14.11.2012) – Real and fictional royalty, ancient and current, united in the film “The Hobbit”. If it is King Richard III, brought in by Mr. Armitage, Prince Charles or dwarf king Thorin Oakenshield, “The Hobbit” and Sir Peter Jackson certainly seem to have some kind of royal blessing.
