Philippa Langley — the woman who discovered King Richard III's grave — is sharing the solution to one of history's greatest cold cases this April 2024 at Sudeley Castle.

Sudeley Castle is hosting an eye-opening evening with historian, author and the woman who discovered the remains of King Richard III this April 2024, as she solves one of history's most compelling cold cases. 

Philippa Langley, who discovered the bones of the infamous king buried beneath a car park in Leicester, is uncovering the truth of another incredible story associated with the monarch, as she shares her findings from the seven-year Missing Princes Project into the mystery of what really happened to Richard III's nephews. 

Based on her book The Princes in the Tower: Solving History's Greatest Cold Case, she investigates the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the boy king, Edward V and his brother Richard, Duke of York from the Tower of London — and whether Richard III was responsible for their deaths — drawing this centuries-old murder mystery to a stunning conclusion. 

Tickets cost £30 each and include a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, access to the castle grounds from 6.15pm, with Philippa's talk beginning at 7pm in the Orangery and Castle Coach House.

Philippa will also be signing copies of her book after the talk, with light bites on offer, too.
