Founders Day Parade at Royal Hospital Chelsea - Royal Attendance

The Royal Hospital Chelsea is a retirement/nursing home for 300+ veterans of the British Army. (Note: The older definition of a “hospital” just meant a charitable institution for the needy, old, sick, or young. And did not necessarily have anything to do with medicine.)

Each year, the hospital holds a parade to mark the hospital's founding by King Charles II (reigned 1660 -1685). The parade is usually held in late May/early June, close to King Charles II's birthday (May 29nd). The parade is attended each year by a member of the Royal Family.
