BBC launches Richard III on WhatsApp

King Richard IIIThe BBC is launching a Richard III WhatsApp alert service which will follow the king’s story in the month of his reburial.

The discovery of the king’s skeleton beneath a Leicester car park in August 2012 attracted worldwide interest.

His remains will be reinterred at Leicester Cathedral on 26 March, after his coffin is taken on a procession through Leicestershire and displayed in the city for three days.

The BBC will be covering the events leading up to the reburial.
