Today the Grenadier Guards, one of the oldest regiments in the British Army, gathered in Bruges, Belgium to mark 360 years since their formation there in 1656.

 

The Grenadier Guards were formed from gentlemen from Henry VIII’s Honourable Artillery Company who had taken the then heir to the throne, Prince Charles (later Charles II), to Europe for his safety during the English Civil War.

 

Following the execution of his father King Charles I in 1649, and the creation of Cromwell’s Commonwealth Republic in England, the young King Charles II was sheltered by Spanish run Flanders and plotted the restoration of the British Monarchy in the Royal Guild of St Sebastian in the heart of Bruges, Belgium.
