Hundreds of people lined the streets to see the King’s Troop parade from Regent’s Park to St John’s Wood High Street today.
The parade marked the horse regiment’s return to the area for the first time since the 200-year-old troop left for new barracks last year.
The King’s Troop horses carry six First World War guns that are ceremonially fired during royal anniversaries and at state occasions.
The regiment was based at barracks in St John’s Woods from the 19th century but moved to Woolwich in February last year.
Clive Beecham, who attended the parade, said: “A few hundred people extra turned up in the high street. One lady came down from Cambridge to see it.

“There were lots of people out there with cameras and there was lots of smiling and clapping.”
