The King’s Birthday parade took place in Casemates last Thursday evening, making it the first official public engagement for the Rock’s new Governor Lt Gen Sir Ben Bathurst.

The Royal Gibraltar Regiment marched across the square for the second birthday parade for King Charles III.

The parade began as the King’s and Regimental Colours of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment marched into Casemates.

The Royal Gibraltar Regiment Band also took part in the parade, supported by Salamanca Band of the Rifles.

Dignitaries from across the Rock were also in attendance to mark the occasion.

On his arrival, the Governor, received a Royal salute before inspecting the parade after a rendition of the national anthem.

The Royal Navy Ensign and the Royal Airforce Standard then marched onto the parade in preparation for the 21-gun salute.

Before the conclusion of the parade, cheers for the King rang around Casemates.
