Well this is an unexpected bonus, and one which will brighten up the Diamond Jubilee celebrations for any of you non-royalists. The Jubilee Pageant at Windsor Castle on May 10th to 13th will feature both historic and contemporary Ferraris, together with a display by the 4th Mounted Carabinieri Regiment.

The Diamond Jubilee Pageant celebrates 60 years of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, and is one of a huge range of events scheduled across the UK during this jubilee year.

Joining Ferrari’s latest models will be a selection of the most beautiful historic and contemporary Ferraris ever built, owned by the marque’s clients and collectors, which will be driven through the grounds of Windsor Castle and then displayed for the duration of the event.

Ferrari, however, wanted to involve another icon of Italian style, and thanks to its financial contribution made to the organisation, will be accompanied to this very special celebration by the 4th Mounted Carabinieri Regiment performing the famous Historic Carosello.

The Carosello will stage a stunning display of horsemanship during which they will perform the intricate yet fluid quadrilles and equestrian rides choreographed to music, to showcase the skill and agility of both horses and riders. The programme culminates in the Regiment’s now legendary final charge.

Ferrari will be represented at the event by Chairman Luca di Montezemolo on the final evening (13th May), which will also be attended by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
