Such interesting history a stones throw from where I live. This lady was real not fiction. The children's film tells the story. But Gravesend has the Princess and a beautiful statue in the church.

Visit the Statue and look around the church at the same time. not much else to see - no-one is absolutely certain where her grave actually is.
