Hampton Court Palace
Hampton Court Palace, whose ‘Henry VIII: Heads and Hearts’ opens on April 10, is London's most famous Tudor building. Richard Evans is one of five Henry VIII impersonators there. ‘The power that Henry commanded is reflected in the way the courtiers respond to my presence,’ he says. Evans started in 2006 and soon received the ultimate promotion – ‘Probably on account of my appearance,’ he chuckles. ‘I marry Katherine Parr every day,’ says Evans, who stays in the haunted King’s apartments. No, he hasn’t seen a ghost.
