There will be a 41-gun salute in Green Park to mark Prince Charles' 71st birthday.

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

Important note: If you're a tourist then you're required by law to stand outside Buckingham Palace and sing him 'Happy Birthday'. You also have to buy him a birthday present. And give him the bumps.

Craig’s review of Ceremony of the Keys One of the best things about going to the Ceremony of the Keys is that you get to see a little bit of London at night. It starts at half-past nine, but if you take the tube to Tower Hill five minutes beforehand then you really are missing out on a treat. So take a tip from m… continued
Craig’s review of Dismounting Ceremony You've done Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace... posed for a photo outside Horse Guards... seen the Ceremony of the Keys and Remembrance Day Parade... tried Trooping the Colour and the State Opening of Parliament... so what have got left? Well, you've forgotten this o… continued
Craig’s review of Changing the Guard Important note: The timings have changed since I wrote this review. Everything now takes place 30 minutes earlier than I say below This is what the final five minutes of Armageddon is going to be like, with everyone crushed up against the Pearly Gates with their heads wedge… continued
Craig’s review of Remembrance Day Parade You have to be a bit brave to attend the Remembrance Day Parade because a week before the date comes round the papers will start churning out scary stories about terrorists wanting to blow up the Queen. This year it's all about ISIS (they are the bad boys at the moment). Bef… continued
