    My ancestor, Baron Walderne fought for the Planteagents. I never knew Benedict was a relation of theirs though.

    This certainly puts a smile on my face! I need to see a recording of the entire ceremony-it is not every day one has the privilege of viewing a funeral for a historical legend like Richard! Plus, Cumberbatch's voice in a cathedral? That cannot go by without a mention-that is something to listen to! And it is insane he is actually related to Richard! I wish I was…

    The whole ceremony, when you think about it, is *profoundly* ridiculous….but Cumberbatch gave a superb oration.

    I could listen to his voice forever bouncing off those cathedral walls.

    Supposedly this was the last English king to die in battle. The post mortem mutilation of his genitals as well as his head prove his enemies feared and respected him. He also had a protruding spinal column that made him a bit of a hunchback. This King was a badass, no wonder the Tudors tried to slander him

    They first evacuated all young women from the hall, for decency's sake.

    So does this mean that bingleditch is more of a legitimate heir to the throne of the British isles than the current campers?

    Cumberbatch is a pretentious prick, whose family wealth comes from slavery, he's irritating as hell, and this service is plain wrong, as Richard should have been interred in York, as per his own wishes and the wishes of all of his living relatives.

    He sounds like an actor, that's what they sound like.  Majestic? why because he's distantly related?  Don't make me laugh.

    Richard III should have been buried at York, that is what he wanted and Leicester Cathedral is not grand enough for a King.

    What? This was outrageous the whole event. Richard the third was a murderer and abuser. He would be on death row in some countries if he had done the things he did today. But hey hes a king so lets forget all of that. Another fucking waste of time and tax payers money for what. Ruling elitist royals who couldn't give two fucks about any "commoners" like you or me. Get a grip the whole thing was a farce for moron indoctrinated fools who think celebrating an evil person cause their tolled to through a controlled media is ok. What is wrong with this world. He was a twisted inbred royal who is known best for murder! People these days say we live in a world where there is no need for a god or religion, I say it should be the same for royals. Inbred twats with a silver spoon shoved up there arse. Think how many lives could of been saved with the money spent on this whole stupid fucking pomp.

    jacquefish you are a typical pathetic royalist, I have no interest in what this pathetic in bred family bring in I am more concerned in what they take out which is a disgusting amount of money and property when decent innocent people struggle to live from day to day, I have no doubt you live in an area which does not suffer from hardship, the monarchy should be disbanded and once Scotland is independent this will eventually happen we will be rid of these freaks, only one with any decency was Diana and they contrived to kill her of so piss off moron.

    The so called 'Royal Family' are outdated! Another elitist tradition in this country that is long overdue getting rid. I am a Socialist and it's time for a revolution.

    This type of demoralisation works on so many levels. Firstly, this YouTube promotion is an advert for this guy’s new movie coming out. Secondly, it's filling precious media time covering a reburial of someone that's already dead! And thirdly, it's an opportunity to re-write his image and paint an awful person in a positive light. It encourages Brits to be patriotic and respectful to the monarchy and its history. Let's not be fooled here. No one voted for a monarchy. They highjacked this great country and made your ancestors pay taxes, which wasn’t the case beforehand. A system we still suffer within today. This is a fucking joke. A terrible, sad and pathetic example of where humanity is currently standing today. And having YouTube shills writing comments on this video only strengthens my point. I guess if you’re mentally weak and like your evil organised, then continue to enjoy the show! Otherwise, I suggest you write from the heart, and feed data to this ever-learning system so that it understands what we truly want going forward. Demoralisation, tax profiteers and a monarchy is what the vast majority would rather do without.

    What an odd event. As an aside, how many other kings have been buried outside of the capital? Seems a little disrespectful to me to bury him in a provision city.

    As a direct descendant of Richard the III, (I'm his great, great + grand daughter) I was also impressed that Benedict Cumberbatch and I are also related!  I'm going to have to research more on the family history to see how, exactly.

    @chris dowell 
    Benedict Cumberbatch's success has nothing to do with him being from a posh family.  He is successful because he's got massive amount of talent and put a lot of hard work towards achieving his goals.  His family are not really that posh either … his parents were jobbing actors who sacrificed a lot to send him to a very good school (he supposedly won a drama scholarship to Harrow) hoping he would become a lawyer or something in a more stable profession.

    Smaug sounds younger in this…probably due to the lack of dwarfs at the funeral service……

    These comments are horrible. Show some respect, guys, instead of making jokes. I think Benedict did a lovely reading and it was smart move by the people in charge of the burial service and direction to choose him for this.
    Imagine what a privilege and honour it must have been for him, considering this is a very distant family member he is doing it for.
