Founder’s Day Celebrated at the Royal Chelsea Hospital with Princess Anne
The Princess Royal attended the Founder’s Day parade at the Royal Chelsea Hospital today, receiving the salute from the Chelsea Pensioners in the grounds of the hospital.
Anne wore a pale blue brocade suit with a bright blue hat, which helped those in attendance to spot her amongst the red tunics of the veterans who call the hospital home. As per tradition, the Princess wore a sprig of oak pinned to her lapel.
Founder’s Day marks the anniversary of King Charles II escaping parliamentary forces following the 1651 Battle of Worcester.Filed under The United Kingdom
