Here’s when to look and how to watch it.
What is the Queen’s gun salute
Royal greetings are fired by military personnel across the UK and abroad on special days such as royal anniversaries and birthdays, and of course to do The Queen’s Platinum Year.
But tradition dictates that when a particular day falls on a Sunday, the royal salute will not take place until the next day.
This year, London’s Green Park will host The King’s Troop’s Royal Artillery Squad to fire a 41 gun.
The Grenadier Guards Band will play celebratory music near the firing position during the run up.
A royal salute typically consists of 21 rounds, this number increases to 41 if fired from a royal park such as Green Park, or from a royal residence.
The gunfire was very loud and dogs walking there were advised to avoid the area.
At the Tower of London, 62 rounds were fired on royal anniversaries.
Basic number 21, plus 20 because the Tower is a royal palace and fortress, plus another 21 because it’s in the City of London, and 41 on other occasions. BILLION
