I've picked this book up several times and then put it back on the shelf at the local library. If you scroll down on the Amazon page, "Lordhoot's" review is fairly revealing.

Yep, I saw that too... I guess there isn't enough information about those boys to fill the entire book so the author has to improvise!

It's my understanding that in the past the Duke of Beaufort has refused dna testing, now with the finding of Richard's remains several members of the family have agreed to testing.  I think 4 of them have agreed to the testing to obtain what would be the Plantagenet Y-chromosome.  That should match Richard's, if they can get the dna and would also match his nephews.  Too bad the church and the Queen won't allow it.

It's my opinion the bones in the urn aren't the princes.  After all they were found 10 feet deep under the stone foundation for some stairs.  Who would be able to dig that undetected?

Maybe when Charles is King things will change and we can find out.

Here is an interesting piece from the Guardian...
http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2013/feb/05/princes-in-tower-staying-under

An interesting similarity between the position of the Dean of Westminster and the Russian Orthodox Church on the legitimacy of the remains of the Royal Family (although in the latter case DNA testing was performed).
