English Civil War Society annual march in commemoration of Charles I

Sunday 26th January 2020

Several hundred members of the King’s Army of the English Civil War Society will march in the footsteps of King Charles I in commemoration of his death at the hands of the Parliament on 30 January 1649.

The march will commence on the Mall, outside St James’ Palace at 11.25 a.m., proceed down the Mall and assemble on Horse Guards Parade where a religious drumhead service is held, a colour is trooped and blessed, the Oath of Loyalty is administered and awards and commissions are presented. The wreath, which ‘Remembers His Majestie’s Horrid Murder’, is then trooped around the whole army before being taken by the honour guard through Horse Guards Arch and across to the Banqueting House at around 12.20 p.m. and laid where the deed was carried out. The King’s Army official policy is never to refer to it as execution as this infers a legal act, which this was not.
