Governor’s Parade

Each Sunday from April – November a small group of Chelsea Pensioners wearing their full ceremonial uniforms go on Parade in the Royal Hospital’s central courtyard Figure Court.  During the short parade before the Sunday Chapel service, they are inspected by the Royal Hospital’s Duty Governor and Duty Officer. This long-held tradition can be watched by Chapel goers and members of the public visiting the site.
