All the King’s horses…


Showing the true meaning of getting back in the saddle, 3 of the King’s Cavalry horses injured after bolting through central London have been pronounced fit enough to take part in the King’s birthday parade later this month… You might remember the horses were spooked by construction work and escaped their handlers back in April. Footage of them injured and galloping through the streets of London went around the world but the UK Ministry of Defence said they’ve now made “a remarkable recovery” and are now “enjoying a summer holiday”. And while we have you on royal news… New bank notes featuring His Majesty have entered circulation – but they may be hard to find given the dwindling number of people still using cash. Not that the King will notice – he’s busy attending the D-Day ceremony in Normandy, France, marking the 80th anniversary of the Allied landing in WWII.

And if you want to learn more about D-Day – the major operation that changed the course of WWII – we’ve got a Shortcut for you. You’re welcome…
