THE LORD LIEUTENANT OF COUNTY DOWN

Her Majesty the Queen's Representative in County Down


THE ROYAL SALUTE ON 14TH NOVEMBER 2018 @ BANGOR CASTLE
TO MARK THE 70TH BIRTHDAY OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS
THE PRINCE OF WALES


Royal or 21 Gun Salutes are held at Hillsborough & other locations 6 times a year to celebrate various Royal occasions, such as Her Majesty, the Queen's Birthday, or in this case to celebrate the 70th birthday of HRH The Duke of Cornwall. The events are usually partnered by another organisation or charity. On this occasion the event was partnered by the Ards & North Down Borough Council. All Royal salutes have been either cancelled or completely private during the Corona virus emergency. It is hoped that they will recommence at the end of 2021 or possibly in early 2022.
