Richard III: Ricardian Philippa Langley hits out at design for king’s tomb

 

Leicester Mercury (June 18, 2014)

 
Richard III: Ricardian Philippa Langley hits out at design for king’s tomb by Peter Warzynski –

With so far 89% opposition (in a Leicester Mercury, not York based poll) against the revealed tomb design of Leicester Cathedral, Philippa Langley hardly is alone with her reservations against the minimalistic design of a deeply carved cross into a block of fossile stone.
Is King Richard III meant to be the dinosaur of English history? Unexplained and misunderstood, though many try?

    • CNN: Richard III: The mystery of the king and the car parking lot, by Bryony Jones (01.02.2013)
      A detailed and detail rich article about the search for King Richard III with new quotes from the research team and screenwriter Philippa Langley, who also talks about Richard Armitage as King Richard III:

      She has even been in talks with Leicestershire lad turned Hollywood hero Richard Armitage — last seen as Thorin Oakenshield in “The Hobbit” — to play the king.

      “He was born to play the role,” she explains. “He’s an amazing doppelganger for Richard III, he was born a couple of miles from Bosworth on the anniversary of Richard’s death, and he was even named after him.”

    Did Richard III actually save the boy king he’s accused of killing?

     

    Royal Central (December 29, 2021)

     
    Did Richard III actually save the boy king he’s accused of killing? by Lydia Starbuck –

    Was King Richard a murderous psychopath or a holier than holy king, who ruled for the benefit of his people? The search for answers occupies historians and researchers and debates are fought heatedly. What a nice change it is, to find new thought-provoking input into this long-lasting debate.
    Philippa Langley, the central figure in finding King Richard III in the carpark in Leicester, has a new theory and clues of what happened to Prince Edward, who would have become King Edward V, if fate had not interfered, and whom King Richard III supposedly had killed.
