King Richard Iii Stays in Leicester!

King Richard III

We are delighted at Lanes Fine Jewellery to hear the news that King Richard III’s remains will stay in Leicester.  The King’s remains will be reburied with a dignified service at Leicester Cathedral.

The skeleton of the King was found a stones throw from our shop under a council car park in 2012 after extensive work by Leicester University.  Despite a challenge from a group of people claiming to be distant relations of the king it has been ruled that he should stay in Leicester where he has lain for the last 500 years.
