Richard the Lionheart will be roaring back to life this month. Supreme royal treatment aplenty has left the late monarch unearthed and armed with not a sword, but a smart phone. The BBC has created a WhatsApp account in the name of the recently disturbed King-turned-carpark attendant, with the hope of ringing his notable tale throughout the country.

His death marked the end of the dark ages, and he has since been immortalized by the pen of William Shakespeare. However, a cultural resurrection will take place on the 22nd of March when the skeletal remains will be gracefully lifted from Leicester University and tactfully toured around the historically relevant locations of the Leicestershire. The tour will also feature a preliminary service in Bosworth to remember the journey that preceded his death in 1485.

The media coverage will climax March 26th when the remains of Richard III are due to be suitably laid to rest in Leicester Cathedral.  The BBC promise to update participants via WhatsApp, with text, photos and videos, all in the spirit of somber reverence and spiritual celebration.

As told by the BBC, to sign up, be edified, and remain in the loop, just add:

BBC Richard III” to your contacts with the number: 07935 237 178 attached.

Then simply send the word “King” via WhatsApp, and prepare for live streams of relevant info that can be ended with an easily sent “Stop” to the same number.

Channel 4 will also be televising the Burial at Leicester Cathedral amongst a host of Royally related programs. The full schedule is available here

Who knows, maybe the reigniting of the battle-hardened king’s life and reputation may even provoke a tweet from the current reining lady’s twitter account. @BritishMonarchy
