Why the "wink" emoticon re: a burial at Westminster Abbey? Wasn't he a king? Are there some unspoken rules about which kings or other regents will be granted that favour (sic) or honour (sic)?
Well it will not happen, thats why I 'winked'.
There are no hard and fast rules about burial at Westminster Abbey.
Its really upto the individual where they wish to be laid to rest, or in very rare circumstances, the State will bequeath the honour to some individual who has done great service to the country.
I'd like to see Richard back in his homeland ie York, but as long as he gets a proper funeral, thats all that really matters.
Now where have I heard that before??
Ah yes...'TREASON..TREASON TREASON'......or was it...'A horse, a horse, my Kingdom for a horse'...... its so confusing all this fact and fiction....one could almost believe Henry VII was a good and just king....or was he???
Lord Percy Percy:- My Lord, you have nothing to worry about; The Prince's are dead.
Richard, Duke of Gloucester:- WHAT!!!! OH MY GOD.....WHAT HAVE YOU DONE PERCY???
Lord Percy Percy:- Ummm....ahhhh, you did say you wanted them murdered and done away my Leige.
Richard, Duke of Gloucester:- No you idiot, I said I wanted them taken further away, not murdered and done away...... you imbecile.
Christ this is going to look bad 600 years down the line.
