Exeunt some with KING EDWARD IV and QUEEN ELIZABETH
KING EDWARD IV and QUEEN ELIZABETH exit with several others.
RICHARD
This is the fruits of rashness. Marked you not
How that the guilty kindred of the queen
Looked pale when they did hear of Clarence' death?
O, they did urge it still unto the king.
145God will revenge it. Come, lords, will you go
To comfort Edward with our company?
RICHARD
This is what happens when you act rashly. Did you notice how the queen’s guilty relatives turned pale when they heard about Clarence’s death? Oh, they continually urged the king to do it. God will revenge it. But come, lords, will you come with me to Edward’s room to comfort him?
BUCKINGHAM
We wait upon your Grace.
BUCKINGHAM
We’ll come with you, your Grace.
Exeunt
They all exit.
