Queen's birthday to be marked with 21-gun salute

A 21-gun salute to mark the Queen's birthday is set to take place on the Long Walk near Windsor Castle tomorrow.

The Royal Borough's annual tribute to Her Majesty, who turns 88 on Monday, will be held near the Brook Street entrance.

Experienced bombardier John Matthews will be in charge of proceedings and the first cannon will be fired at noon.

Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Andrew Jenner said: "This is a traditional and fitting way to wish Her Majesty happy birthday – and there is an opportunity for children to fire one of the cannons, under supervision.

"Each year this special event attracts many visitors and I am very much looking forward to welcoming the many spectators."
