King Richard III Reburied 530 Years After Death

Five hundred thirty years after his death, England has decided to give King Richard III an official state burial by interring his body, which was discovered under a parking lot three years ago, at Leicester’s Anglican cathedral, in a decision that some have viewed as a proper send-off for a former king and others have deemed a cheap spectacle. What do you think?
