What do you get the king-to-be who has everything for his 70th birthday?
How about a banging party in the park?
Prince Charles turned 70 today (Wednesday) and to mark the occasion, York hosted a royal gun salute.
Crowds gathered in Museum Gardens to witness the celebrations.
The Royal Salute was hosted by 4th Infantry Brigade and Headquarters North East, led by deputy commander Colonel Andy Hadfield.
Before the big guns were wheeled out, the Band of The King’s Division marched through York, led by music director Major Stewart Halliday.
York is an official saluting station – one of 12 around the country to simultaneously host a gun salute this lunchtime.
