Benedict Cumberbatch Will Read Richard III Poem at Reburial Ceremony
Benedict Cumberbatch enjoys a small cup of coffee while arriving at BBC studios on Wednesday (March 25) in London, England.
It was just announced that the 38-year-old actor will read a poetic tribute to English king Richard III at his reburial at Leicester Cathedral on Thursday (March 26).
In 2012, archaeologists discovered Richard‘s bones under a Leicester parking lot. After his death in 1485, his burial place had been forgotten.
In case you didn’t know, Benedict is the king’s third cousin, 16 times removed!
