If you've been following the King in the Carpark travails (here and here and here), then this is nearing the finish line. Leicester Cathedral is preparing a raised tomb for him. And according to the Leicester Diocese website, they plan on spending about £1 million ($1.5 million) on the reinterment, which includes alterations to the building (possibly including a stained glass window), preparations for the event and the ceremony itself.
The Dean of Leicester, The Very Revd David Monteith, said the plans were influenced by feedback from a variety of sources, including members of the public who had been visiting the Cathedral and commenting in the media.
"We are committed to reinter King Richard with honour and we have listened carefully to the different views that were expressed. We want to create a really wonderful space in the Cathedral for him and the many thousands of people we know will want to come to visit and pay their respects.
The Bishop of Leicester, The Rt Revd Tim Stevens hopes the plans will please everyone involved. "This is an immensely complex project and we are determined to get it right. Inevitably that means considerable expense but we are confident that with the support of the Church and the public, we can honour Richard and his story."
