Chelsea Pensioners - we're a pretty resilient bunch...It's pretty hot today... and it's a Friday. So I thought I would keep this week's blog post nice and short.
Founder's Day is a long standing annual tradition at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Over the years, the Chelsea Pensioners have been reviewed by a great number of members of the Royal Family and Field Marshals. These include HM King Edward VII (1909), HM King George V (1912), HM Queen Mary (1937), HRH The Princess Margaret (1954), FM Lord Montgomery (1959 & 1967), HM The Queen (1962, 1975, 1982 and 2006), HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother (1966, 1981, 1986 & 1991), HRH The Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh (1997), HRH Prince Henry (Harry) (2011) and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall (2013).
