    Re: St James’s Palace
    Very early on the morning of 31 May 1810, Joseph Sellis, the valet of Ernest Augustus I (5 June 1771 – 18 November 1851), King of Hanover (though at that time he was Duke of Cumberland) died at St James’s Palace. His neck was cut so very deeply apparently. The Duke claimed Sellis committed suicide after attempting to assassinate him. It has been suggested that Sellis haunts St James’s Palace but I do not know of any accounts of anyone encountering him.
