Presentation of the King's Company Colour, the Royal Standard of the Regiment
06 March 2023
To keep you informed, The Presentation of the King's Company Colour the Royal Standard of the Regiment will take place at Buckingham Palace on Thursday 27th April 2023. His Majesty the King will present a new Standard and Colours to the Royal Navy, two Regiments of the Army (The Life Guards and Grenadier Guards) and the RAF together on the same day.
This is a very different parade to that of 1953 and much more like the Presentations of 1903 and 1911, which took place in the Quadrangle of Buckingham Palace without any Spectators. Please note that this is a Try-Service event, therefore the Regiment is not in control of it. The expected number of Spectators will be very limited, so unfortunately there will not be the opportunity for the attendance that the Regiment would have hoped for.
