DUKE of Gloucester, meet the Duke of Gloucester.

His Royal Highness, Prince Richard, arrived in the city to view an historic display of his most famous predecessor yesterday.

Prince Richard visited the head of the former Duke of Gloucester, Richard III, which is on display at Gloucester City Museum.

Although he had the chance to see it in London, Prince Richard wanted to see it in Gloucester because of the historic title.

Posing for pictures, Prince Richard commented on the nice hair on the head.

He said: “It is very encouraging to see so many people support this significant display. He is well worth evaluating.”

Richard III might have been dead for more than 500 years but he is certainly pulling in the crowds during the festival marking Gloucester’s stop on the reconstructed head’s national tour. More than 700 people have already seen the head, which is on display until March 30.
