There will be a 41-gun salute in Green Park to mark the Colombian State Visit.
His Excellency President Juan Manuel Santos Calderon and Mrs Maria Clemencia Rodriguez de Santos will enjoy an Honour Guard at Horse Guards Parade from 11.45 AM to 12.30 PM, before being escorted up The Mall to Buckingham Palace by the Household Cavalry.

Note: Another gun salute will be taking place at the Tower of London at exactly the same time.
