After her sellout success at last year’s festival with The Lost King, the story of finding Richard III’s grave, Philippa returns with another riveting tale, The Princes in the Tower: Solving History’s Greatest Cold Case. When Richard III seized the throne of England in 1483, the legitimate king, Edward V and his brother, Prince Richard, were imprisoned in the Tower of London and then murdered. Or were they? Philippa has undertaken the first ever forensic investigation and pulled back the curtains of history to reveal an extraordinary story. ‘We have discovered not just proof of life but overwhelming evidence… that not only did the Princes in the Tower survive but they went on to challenge Henry VII for the throne of England.’ This is a brilliantly told, spellbinding and compelling story.
