21-gun salute for The King’s birthday

About

Children are invited to help wish His Majesty The King a happy 75th birthday, by taking part in the traditional 21-gun salute outside Windsor Castle, on Tuesday 14 November, starting at noon.

The Royal Borough will be celebrating in style with the annual firing of mini cannon on The Long Walk, near the Brook Street entrance, with the special tribute led by Councillor Neil Knowles, the mayor.

As usual, a number of lucky children attending the ceremony will be chosen at random to fire the guns, under the safe supervision of an ordnance expert. The event generally attracts a sizeable crowd and the mayor is looking forward to this very special event.

Cllr Knowles said: “This annual gun salute on the reigning monarch’s birthday is a long-standing Windsor tradition, and this year will be only the second time we’re firing the guns to wish His Majesty a happy birthday.  

“This is an exciting opportunity for our younger residents to play a part in the birthday celebrations, with Windsor Castle as the historic backdrop. If your children would like to be involved, simply turn up by 11.40am and they might be fortunate to be picked.”
