A reader recently wrote in to share with me a paranormal experience she had in 1987 at Hampton Court and this got me thinking about my recent visit. In September last year I was lucky enough to spend the day wandering the corridors of Hampton Court and was even able to take part in the preparations for Henry VIII’s wedding to Catherine Parr- more to come on this soon! My hopes of something ‘paranormal’ happening were of course increased as I approached the Haunted Gallery as one always hopes to catch a glimpse of Catherine Howard’s screaming spectre but of course nothing out of the ordinary happened. I did though take several photos just in case and although no eery spectre is visible there are a number of orbs in several of the photos. I am completely aware that sceptics claim this to be nothing more than dust but why do they appear in some photos and not others? I thought I would leave it up to you to decide- paranormal or in need of a serious vacuum??
