Hot Take Anne Neville deserved better also Richard didn’t kill the princes in the tower

About Anne-You’re right and you should say it!

As for the princes, it’s a bit dicey, but I would say Richard murdered them. Yes, he invalidated their claims to the throne, but why take the risk? People were clearly upset about it and it would have been in Richard’s best interest to kill them if he wanted to secure the throne. Also, he could have easily looked into the matter further since he obviously knew people suspected him, but he chose not to do it. The theories for other people killing the princes don’t make much sense, even if they wanted to frame Richard.

I think most people at the time and historians today suspected Richard murdered them, which is why Shakespeare says that it was him who murdered the princes in the play.
