The Ghost of Hampton Court!
Submitted on the Ghoststudy message board
To the skeptic it may simply look like a fuzzy CCTV image of someone in a long coat walking through a doorway. Experts say the long-coated figure could be the best proof yet found that things really do go bump in the night... and the day too. The mystery surfaced two months ago at the 16th-century palace, once home to King Henry VIII. Security staff heard alarms ringing near an exhibition hall, indicating fire doors had been opened. But on investigation they found the doors closed. Perplexed, they examined CCTV footage, and that is when it got spooky. The cameras showed the heavy doors popping open but no one there. Then, suddenly, the long- coated figure appeared and slammed the doors shut. The guards were told the same thing happened at the same time - about 1pm - the day before.
To add to the mystery, the doors also flew open at the same time the very next day. But the ghostly figure has been spotted only once. The suspected spook has not just been sighted by CCTV. Australian tourists also claim to have seen a ghost near the exhibition area. The palace, in West London, has ruled out its guides as suspects because they do not enter that part of the building. Psychologist Dr Richard Wiseman said the spectre, nicknamed Skeletor, might prove to be a significant discovery. 'It could be the best ghost sighting ever,' he said. 'I haven't seen anything that would match that at all.'

"Leading to the Chapel Royal is the passage known as the Haunted Gallery, so called because legend has it that the ghost of Henry's fifth wife, Catherine Howard, has been seen and heard passing along it. After the Queen had been accused of unfaithfulness by her husband, she was kept prisoner in her apartments. But one day, so the legend goes, she contrived to evade the guards and ran towards the Chapel , where the King was hearing Mass, to make a last plea for mercy. Her way was barred by more guards, who dragged her, shrieking, back through the gallery. Three months later she was beheaded at the Tower. " Could this be the ghost of Katherine Howard. If you look at the clothing, it does look very much like the clothing worn by women during the times of Tudor England . . . Large bell-like sleeves (made popular by Anne Boelyn to hide her "sixth finger"), a split skirt to show a brocade peticote beneath . . .??? It is said that Katherine's ghost runs through the castle towards the chapel, as she did in life, to plead with her husband, Henry VIII, to forgive her for lying about her past and her adulteress affair with Thomas Culpepper. She never got to Henry however."

 Jim's Comments:

This photograph has received world wide attention just a few months ago and so we now post it here in case anyone missed it. By the way, If anyone has an update on Hampton Court, please send it along. We know that at one time, a (live) employee was suspected of being the ghost in period costume in this mysterious photograph.
