Queens Birthday 21 Gun Salute

June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

 

 

A 21 Gun Salute on the Lower Forecourt at 12pm will mark the Official Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Head of State. Although her actual birthday is 21 April, the reigning monarch holds an Official Birthday usually in early June to coincide with finer weather in the northern hemisphere that benefits the outdoor ceremonies. In Victoria this is held on the second Monday in June

A 21 Gun Salute is a traditional salute firing blanks from an artillery piece or cannon to acknowledge special Royal occasions within the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.
