Palace 'ghost' caught on camera

LONDON, England (AP) -- Are there ghostly goings-on at Henry VIII's palace, or is that hazy image of a fellow in fancy robes just a bit of Christmas cheer?

Closed-circuit security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, the huge Tudor castle outside London, seem to have snagged an ethereal visitor. Could it be a ghost?

"We're baffled too -- it's not a joke, we haven't manufactured it," said Vikki Wood, a Hampton Court spokeswoman, when asked if the photo the palace released was a Christmas hoax. "We genuinely don't know who it is or what it is."

There's a photo. Spooooooooookyyyyyyyyy.............

Who was King Henry VIII?

he was also a terrible and cruel King. He executed (had killed) anyone who disagreed with him (including two of his wives!)

When he became King the country was Catholic and was controlled by the Pope in Rome. When the Pope wouldn?t let Henry get divorced from his first wife, Henry made himself head of the church in England instead and gave himself the divorce he wanted.

By the time Henry died, everyone was completely terrified of him.
His Wives
There is a little rhyme that will help you remember what happened to each wife:
Divorced, beheaded, died
Divorced, beheaded, survived.

The ghost of the beheaded wives, may be?

In reply to: Speaking of ghosts....

Been browsing through some old postings starting from the ending and saw this particular thread and few others that I find interesting. And because I have this information on King Henry in my favorites, I thought it sort of relevant to the ghost issue of the haunted palace.

Of course, it was!

Of course, it was!

I've enjoyed reports of ghostly sightings in Great Britain for years.

We visited a Druid site, and the photos we took around the sacrificial stone there each have an unexplained wispy area on them that are not present on the many others we took.


But fun!:-)

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
