Commemoration of King Charles I, 2017

Wreath placed by the King’s Army of the Civil War Society on the plinth of the equestrian statue of King Charles, Whitehall, London, to mark the anniversary of his beheading on 30 January 1649.  The plinth was also decorated with three wreaths composed mainly of white roses and eucalyptus foliage, from ‘the Governor-General and Members of the Royal Stuart Society’, ‘the Order of the Crown of Stuart’ and ‘the Memorial of Merit of King Charles the Martyr’, and a bunch of white roses which was left anonymously.
