Charles II (1630-1685) and Catherine of Braganza (1638-1705)

Today is Oak Apple Day for royalists.

It's 356 years since King Charles II returned to the throne. God Save The Queen!

Worcester celebrates the restoration of the monarchy in Oak Apple Day. (From Malvern Gazette)

Oak Apple Day was once widespread throughout Britain. People wore sprigs of oak and gilded oak apples in their lapels. There were at one time special commemorative Church services held on the 29th May, but gradually, through the 19th century Oak Tree Day became forgotten, and only celebrated in certain towns and villages, mainly in the west of England, as above.

Charles II was a daring young man. He enjoyed the luxuriousness of his father's court.

Charles II founded the Royal Hospital in Chelsea for old soldiers and laid the foundation stone for its stylish building by Sir Christopher Wren.
