Parading Queen’s horse killed in front of horrified crowd

MailOnline: Murphy, one of the Queen’s horses passed away as a result of a horrible accident when he took part in the Royal Gun Salute  today which happens yearly in Britain to celebrate the crowning of the Queen.

The incident occurred today when King’s Troop‘s soldiers were parading when Murphy stumbled whilst running and his legs got caught up in the wheels of one of the carriages on parade. As a result poor Murphy was dragged on the ground for several meters and sustained injuries so severe that he had to be disposed of immediately by lethal injection by a vet who was called to the scene of the incident, with the event’s terrified crowd looking on.

The Queen has made no comment thus far upon Murphy’s demise and it is not known whether a police enquiry will take place as result of the incident.

Murphy was a popular and good-natured horse and it seems, will be sadly missed by his colleagues in the Kings Troops.

The American president, Barack Obama and the First Lady, were the host of an event at Winfield House in Regent’s Park, which is the official home of the American Ambassador, in honour of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as a reciprocal gesture for the previous evening’s Buckingham Palace state banquet.

MailOnline:  The Obamas‘ state visit to the UK seemed to be a big hit with all from the meetings with UK Prime Minister, David Cameron to that with the British royal family at Buckingham Palace.

Discussions between the politicians were reported to be warm and constructive with every hint of the ‘elusive’ special relationship in the air.

It is reported that points discussed covered how to induce ‘a sense of optimism and national mission’, whilst attending to declining living standards and the re-establishment of economies severely damaged by the financial crisis. Climate change, foreign policy challenges in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya also were featured in the discussions.
