Royal perks

No disrespect intended, but it's funny how if you're royalty and overstay your session in municipal parking by over 500 years, you don't get a parking ticket!

The news today announced that that the much maligned Richard III has been buried under a car park for half a millennia. I bet that's got the Queen worried - no doubt she'll be steering well clear of construction sites for the foreseeable future.

I am intrigued though by these relatives of the deceased King that they have 'dug up'. Do you think they might wish to resurrect the Plantagenet line and stake a claim to the throne? More concern for Her Majesty...

I wonder if we'll ever find out if he really did order the murder of the Princes in the Tower. If he did, then frankly having a car park plonked on his head was probably just desserts.

In all seriousness though... what a story, what a find! Imagine the conversation when the diggers got home:

"Find anything interesting on your dig today dear? Any coins, broken bits of pottery?"

"Yeah, Richard the Third".



  1. I have just this minute finished watching the programme about it. What happens to him now I wonder.

  2. It is extraordinary ... will be interesting to see how it all unfolds... xx

  3. If you go treasure hunting in most public places today, you will find plenty Richard the thirds!

    Very funny Lisa, thanks :-)


Thank you for your comments - I always love to hear what you think :)
