The 66th anniversary is a day earlier, but flares are never held on Sunday, so the extra honor will take place on Monday.

A basic royal firearm salute has 21 rounds. But a Royal Park, such as Green Park, adds another 20. There the King & # 39; s Troop Royal Horse Artillery will operate 13-pounder field people from the World War I era, drawn by 71 horses.

In the Tower of London, which receives 62 cannons during a royal anniversary greeting, the Honorable Artillery Company will perform the ceremony with L118 Ceremonial Light Guns similar to those used in Afghanistan.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defense said: & # 39; The UK and the US have a special relationship that benefits both of us.

# We do more together than any of the two nations in the world and we work together across a wide range of hugely important issues.

However, he indicated today that he also his & # 39; friends & # 39; Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage could meet during the three-day trip to Britain.

The American president praised the two politicians as & # 39; major powers & # 39; and said that Mr Farage's Brexit party last week was a & # 39; big win & # 39; had achieved in the EU elections.

Farage told MailOnline that he & # 39; perfectly happy & # 39; would be to meet Mr. Trump, but there were no plans yet.

& # 39; We'll have to see it, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I would be very happy, of course I would. I recently saw him on the other side (from the Atlantic Ocean) a few months ago. & # 39;

It is clear that Mr Johnson – the leader in the race to take over Mrs. May as Prime Minister – has not yet been invited to a meeting.
