The Queen’s horses will be on display as part of a 41-gun salute to celebrate her birthday in Green Park, London on Tuesday April 21 at midday.

The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery and their six 13 pound First World War guns, each drawn by six Irish draught horses, will enter Green Park at the top end of Constitution Hill and trot down to the firing position near Canada Gate.

The public can watch the whole event free of charge.

There will also be a 62 gun salute from Gun Wharf at the Tower of London by the Honourable Artillery Company. The additional 21 guns are because the Tower is a royal palace.

Captain Robert Skeggs, commanding the troop, said: “Salutes will resume in Hyde Park on 2 June with the 56th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, then on 10 June the birthday of the Duke of Edinburgh and also at the conclusion of the Queen’s birthday parade on June 13 in Green Park.”
