This blog began as The White Queen hit TV screens so it seems quite appropriate that as I reboot and refocus, Elizabeth Woodville is making headlines again. This still controversial queen is in the news again as fresh research throws a different light on how she spent her final days.

The Queen's 93rd birthday fell on Easter Sunday which meant we all got a glimpse of the monarch on her special day.
