Archbishop of Canterbury to be present at burial of his relative, Richard III

__.  The most senior Roman Catholic archbishop in England and Wales will take part in services marking the reburial of the remains of King Richard III.

The Diocese of Leicester said the Roman Catholic archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, will be present when the monarch is laid to rest in March, 2015.

The Archbishop of Canterbury is seventeen generations in descent from Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, and is an ancestral nephew of the unfortunate King Richard. 

The archbishop's royal genes have been passed down from Welby's mother, Jane, Lady Williams of Elvel.
