Several British soldiers engaged in preparations for the parade celebrating the birthday of the sovereign (Trooping the colour', which is held on June 17 and does not coincide with the true birthday of Charles III) have accused illness, some even fainted, due to the strong heat that hit London.
At least three servicemen - wearing wool uniforms and traditional bear fur hats - lost consciousness during the ceremony, in front of the Prince of Wales, William, who was reviewing the troops. The parade involves the use of hundreds of horses and complex maneuvers.
In particular, reports the BBC, a bugler then got back on his feet trying to resume playing, collecting the applause of the crowd gathered in St James's Park.
William then thanked the military in a tweet highlighting the difficult conditions, with temperatures above 28 degrees.
