The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) will be firing a 62-gun salute at Gun Wharf by the Tower of London, to mark Prince Charles' 68th birthday.

We all know what he really wants for his birthday (the throne), but the Queen shows no sign of giving him that. So it will probably be socks again this year.

Happy birthday, Charlie!

Note: Another gun salute will take place one hour earlier in Green Park.
