Catch up on our stream of the parade at Salisbury and updates from the day

The Princess Royal took the salute during this year’s Armed Forces Day parade as she joined thousands of people at the main event in Salisbury and others around the world to honour the servicemen and women from all branches of Britain’s military community.

Princess Anne has been meeting members of the Armed Forces as she toured the military village at the event while she received a salute during the parade of more than 1,300 personnel, veterans and cadets.

Footage of the parade can be watched in the video above, with more key moments and all the atmosphere from this year’s celebrations posted in our updates in the feed below – including video, photos and picks from across social media platforms.

Armed with plenty of sun screen and bottles of water, the crowds have not been put off with the high temperatures today at Hudson’s Field in Salisbury.

The public have arrived in their thousands to welcome the Armed Forces community into their city.

It has been an incredible day at the annual Armed Forces day event.

There has been a real buzz in the summer sun all day, where members of the public have come out in force to say thank you to the military community.

They have had a great deal of fun, getting up close and personal with an array of military hardware on display.

The Military Wives Choirs’ rendition of Take That’s Rule The World on the main stage went down a treat with the cheering crowds.

More excitement is expected later this evening where the Kaiser Chiefs will be performing.

Last night, The Feeling took to the stage to entertain the crowds gathering before today’s main event – clips of which can be seen in the feed below – while indie rockers Kaiser Chiefs will headline later on Saturday evening.

Those supporting Armed Forces Day this year have also been entertained by military music, sets from the bands of the Royal Marines and the Royal Air Force and a Kukri knife display with music by the Royal Gurkha Band, also seen in a video in the feed below.

Displays have included a flypast of the RAF Red Arrows with spectacular displays by the Army’s Parachute Regiment – with video of the aerial displays in the feed below.

Visitors have also been able to take part in virtual reality flight simulators by the Royal Air Force at an event space inside the grounds to highlight the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education and work projects promoted by the Armed Forces.

Catch up on all the atmosphere, parades, music performances and parachute displays in the updates below.
