The Queen and Prince Andrew Duke of York attended the amalgamation parade of The Queen’s Royal Lancers and 9th/12th lancers (Prince of Wales’s) at Richmond Castle earlier today. The Queen, dressed appropriately given today’s other Royal news, took the Royal Salute in the historic castle grounds before inspecting and addressing the parade for the newly formed The Royal Lancers.
Members of the regiment and their families then had the opportunity to meet the Queen and despite the constant rain and chilly temperatures the gathered crowds remained in good spirits.
