Salute For Queen’s Birthday At Windsor To Be Conducted By The Public Tomorrow

The Gun Salute conducted outside Windsor Castle on the Long Walk is to be conducted tomorrow (Saturday) for The Queen’s birthday by members of the public.

The Royal Salute on the Long Walk tomorrow outside Windsor Castle is to be conducted partly by members of the public at the Brook Street entrance on the Long Walk a day before Her Majesty’s birthday, which is on Sunday.

The Royal Borough Observer in Windsor said, “The Royal Borough’s annual 21-gun salute on The Long Walk to mark The Queen’s birthday takes place tomorrow (20/4) with families and children invited to watch and have the opportunity to fire a cannon as part of the salute”


Royal Borough Mayor Councillor Colin Rayner, who will be attending, said: “Our cannons may be small, but they pack a punch and we find that children really enjoy the excitement, particularly those who get the opportunity to fire a cannon themselves.

“I issue a warm invitation to everyone to join in the celebration and look forward to welcoming them to the Long Walk. We want everyone to come with good voices for the singing of the National Anthem.”

Experienced bombardier John Matthews will oversee the proceedings and ensure the cannons are fired safely by the children.
