Gun Salute for Prince Charles

14/11/2019 All day

Teams of horses gallop across the park, pulling six thirteen-pounder guns at speed over the grass. The guns are quickly detached and, upon command, fire booming blanks which reverberate through the ground, sending a puff of white smoke into the air. This is a Royal Gun Salute as it happens in a Royal Park, and it is given as a sign of respect or welcome upon various important Royal occasions.
