A 41-gun Royal Salute booms across London to mark the 66th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne.

When was Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne and why?

Princess Elizabeth, then aged 25, was in Kenya on a royal tour when she learned of her father George VI's death in 1952.

The King, who was ill with lung cancer and other ailments, had ignored doctors' advice to see his daughter off from London Airport on January 31.

Elizabeth and her husband Philip planned to travel to Australia after a week in Kenya.

But on the morning of February 6, the King was found dead from a coronary thrombosis in his bed at Sandringham in Norfolk. Philip broke the news to his wife.

The Princess, eldest of the monarch's two daughters and first in line to the throne, flew back to London as Queen.

She formally proclaimed her accession at a meeting of the Accession Council - a ceremonial body made up of privy councillors, peers and senior officials - at St James's Palace on February 8.

Queen Elizabeth II said: "By the sudden death of my dear father I am called to assume the duties and responsibilities of sovereignty.

"My heart is too full for me to say more to you today than I shall always work, as my father did throughout his reign, to advance the happiness and prosperity of my peoples, spread as they are all the world over."

How is Accession Day celebrated and what happens in a royal gun salute?

February 6 is celebrated every year with church services and official functions across the country.

Flags are flown and soldiers fire gun salutes in London's Green Park and the Tower of London, and also at Woolwich, Colchester, Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Cardiff, Belfast, York, Portsmouth, Plymouth and Dover Castle.

The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery fires a 41-gun salute in Green Park every year on Accession Day.

The 41-gun royal gun salute in Green Park takes place at midday.

The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery in full dress uniform ride out from Wellington Barracks and parade past Buckingham Palace.

Six First World War era 13-pounder guns are pulled across the park by teams of six horses each.

The guns are detached and soldiers fire blanks a total of 41 times at ten second intervals, sending up puffs of white smoke.
