There will be a 41-gun salute in Green Park to mark the anniversary of the Queen's Coronation in 1953.

It will be fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery (KTRHA), and usually takes place near the northern edge of the park, a short distance from Constitution Hill.

This year marks the Queen's 66th year on the throne... so she's already overtaken Queen Victoria's record of 63 years and 216 days.

How long do you think she'll be able to go? She's only 93 years old this year, so hopefully for many more years yet -- especially when you remember that the Queen Mother didn't finally pass away until she was 245.

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.
