Queen presents New Colours to Scots Guards

The Queen presented new colours to the 1st Battalion and F Company Scots Guards in the Garden of Buckingham Palace on May 18th. The Queen, Colonel-in-Chief, was accompanied by her cousin, the Duke of Kent, who is the Colonel of the Regiment.

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.

The Queen wore a floral dress with a pale blue coat and hat, pairing her customary Three Strand Pearl Necklace with the Thistle and Rose Scots Guards Badge.
