The lawyer who spearheaded Richard III's descendants' legal challenge has described the High Court decision as "highly regrettable".
Matthew Howarth, partner at Yorkshire law firm Gordons, said his clients were now considering appealing against the ruling.
Mr Howarth said: "We obviously respect and accept today's verdict, and are grateful to have had the opportunity to raise this matter before the courts, but are naturally disappointed at the decision, which we regard as highly regrettable."
