Leicester Cathedral revealed the sealed tomb of Richard III on 27 March, a day after his coffin was buried in a vault there, during a funeral service held 530 years after the English king died.

The tomb weighs two tonnes and is made from fossil limestone, with a deep cross on the top.

Richard III, was the last English king to die in battle. His remains were found under a car park three years ago. He died in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth Field on 22 August.

Following the battle, his naked body was thrown on the back of a horse, taken to nearby Leicester and buried in a humble grave.

Despite reigning just 777 days, he still fascinates not just historians but ordinary people across the world, some of whom made the trip to Britain to witness the ceremony.
