During the milestone occasion, which also marked the first time a monarch has ridden on horseback since the late Queen Elizabeth II in 1986, Charles looked smart in his military red uniform.

The King, Colonel in Chief of the Regiments of the Household Division, wore the tunic of the Guard of Honour Order, the Welsh Guards, alongside the cypher of Queen Elizabeth II.
