In 1674, skeletons of 2 children were discovered under the staircase leading to the chapel at the Tower of London. Believed to be the remains of the "Princes in the Tower", the skeletons were buried, on the orders of Charles II, in Westminster Abbey. In 1933, the grave was re-opened & the skeletons determined to be those of 2 young children, one aged 7 to 11 & the other 11 to 13. Therefore, the skeletons could belong to the missing Princes. If only the Queen would allow DNA examinations!
