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 97 years old? And he probably still works ten times harder than me!
Important note: Prince Philip's birthday is actually on the 10th June, and that's when they usually hold the gun salute. But for some unknown reason they have pushed it back to the 11th this year.

Craig’s review – “I don't get on very well with the sun. Put it this way: we're not friends. If I'm going to be walking around a park for two hours then I usually like to do it in the rain -- but it's sunny today. It's hot enough to boil the tears off my cheeks. So if I wilt halfway round then you'll understand why, because Hyde Park is a lot bigger than it looks on a map.
I'm start… continued”
