There will be a 41-gun salute in Hyde Park to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's birthday (better known as Prince Philip).

It will be fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery (KTRHA), and take place in the north-eastern corner of the park, a short distance from Speaker's Corner.

The old fella is getting on a bit now -- can you believe that he's going to be 96 years old this year? And he probably still works ten times harder than me!

There are quite a few military parades taking place this month, so you might also like to check out our calendar of military events and list of parades in London.
