Regimental History

The Grenadier Guards have a famous and glorious history. Raised on the order of Charles II, the exiled King of England, in Flanders in 1656, from that time on there exists an unbroken link of loyalty to the monarchy.

The regiment has fought in every major British conflict since then and our rich history can be viewed in detail in the 'Online history section'.
