Prince Andrew, also Earl of Inverness and Baron Killyleagh, will represent Her Majesty The Queen and the royal family on Saturday June 27.

As part of the event, His Royal Highness will take the salute for a tri-service parade of serving personnel, veterans and cadets marching from the bottom of the High Street and through the historic heart of Guildford town centre to Stoke Park.

The mayor of Guildford, Councillor Nikki Nelson-Smith, said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome the Duke of York to Guildford for the Armed Forces Day national event.

"We are tremendously proud to be hosting such a magnificent event and hope that people from our local community, across the UK and abroad will join us for the celebrations”.

Armed Forces Day aims to celebrate and express appreciation for the work and outstanding contribution of our armed forces, and to give thanks to serving personnel, reservists, cadets and veterans from all three services, and their families.

Following the Armed Forces Day parade through the town at 11.30am, a spectacular free event in Stoke Park will feature fantastic live action military displays.

These include stunning flypasts, breathtaking parachute displays, military bands, motorcycle displays, a gymnastics show and a dramatic battlefield demonstration.

Visitors will be able to see current and vintage military vehicles and aircraft along with displays and demonstrations from the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

There will also be plenty of live music and entertainment to enjoy throughout the day and into the evening. The event finishes at 7.30pm.
