The Queen celebrates her 89th birthday bdbab ,l. fl09 ,l.

Gun salutes have been fired in London's Hyde Park to mark the Queen's 89th birthday.

Her Majesty is celebrating the occasion privately at Windsor Castle where she has been staying for the past month.

In her honour, the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery staged a 41-gun royal salute in full dress uniform.

The salute was followed by a selection of celebratory music from the Band of the Royal Artillery close to the firing position.

The King's Troop rode their horses and gun carriages past Buckingham Palace at midday en route to Hyde Park where they staged their gun salute using six 13-pounder Field Guns dating from around the time of the First World War.

An hour later, the Honourable Artillery Company fired a 62-gun royal salute from the river bank at the Tower of London, overlooking HMS Belfast.
