The Queen’s arrival on the West Terrace was announced by a Royal Salute, followed by the National Anthem. She inspected the Regiment, presented new colours and then addressed the parade, which concluded with three cheers and a march past. Afterwards, the Queen met a representative group of the Scots Guards Family and sat for a Regimental photograph with the new colours. The Duke of Kent met serving and retired soldiers and families at the Regimental Garden Party that followed the parade.
