King Richard III reinterment – 26 March 2015

Here you will find everything you need to know about our plans for the reburial of the last of the Plantagenet kings. These plans are well advanced but are developing all the time, so please keep coming back because this website will be updated regularly.  On 7 August we announced that the date of the reinterment is to be Thursday 26th March 2015, and that the His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester has agreed to be the royal patron of our Appeal. 

Here you also have an opportunity to make a donation to our fundraising appeal for the reburial of this king of England. Please do consider doing this because it is a responsibility we are undertaking on behalf of all the people of our nation. Your support is greatly appreciated.
