I regret to say that on the Historical Note that I wrote for the Orders of Service for the reinterment of Richard III, I inadvertently substituted the birthday of Richard’s mother (3 May) for the birthday of Richard (2 October). I also stated that he emerged into public life in 1459: the date should have read 1469.
I apologise for the error, which was entirely my fault.
