Detail, Stained glass window, N.XXXVIII, Canterbury Cathedral
Detail from the Royal Window in the north transept depicting the family of Edward IV. Created in 1465 by William Neave, this detail shows "the Princes in the Tower", left, Richard Duke of York (1473-1483?) and right, Edward Prince of Wales (1470-1483?).
Edward has the Prince of Wales ostrich feather.

The heads and inscriptions are replacements.
Canterbury Cathedral
The Cathedral's history goes back to 597AD when St Augustine, sent by Pope Gregory the Great as a missionary, established his seat (or 'Cathedra') in Canterbury. In 1170 Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in the Cathedral and ever since, the Cathedral has attracted thousands of pilgrims, as told famously in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.
