41-gun salute marks first anniversary of King Charles’ coronation

A 41-gun salute was held in London’s Green Park today (6 May), to mark one year since King Charles’ coronation.

Before midday, 71 horses, pulled six First World War era 13-pounder Field Guns over the grass, to celebrate the occasion.

Shortly after, a 62-gun salute took place at the Tower of London, as well as Edinburgh Castle in Scotland, Cardiff Castle in Wales, and at Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland.
