Watch: Founder's Day Parade 2020

18th June 2020

Watch our video from this year's unique Founder's Day Parade.

This year, the Royal Hospital held a slightly unusual Founder's Day Parade in order to observe social distancing.

Although we were very sad our friends, supporters and Reviewing Officer HRH the Duchess of Cornwall could not be in attendance, the Chelsea Pensioners still managed to mark the day with true military spirit. Below is a behind-the-scenes look on how the Royal Hospital commemorated their Founder Charles II within the parameters of lockdown.

We hope you enjoy watching and we look forward to opening our gates once again for future events and Parades.
