The Queen has visited the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards at their new barracks in Scotland.

As Colonel in Chief of the regiment, this was her first visit to the troops since they relocated from Germany.
 
Her Majesty talked to soldiers and families about their work and activities, inspected the regimental drum horse ‘Talavera’ and listened to the regiment’s world famous Pipes and Drums. 
 
Children from Leuchars Primary school were also invited into the barracks.
 
Her Majesty ended her visit by unveiling a new stone cairn to name the Eastern side of the camp ‘Waterloo Lines’.
 
Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin Cattermole MBE said: 
 
“On behalf of the SCOTS DG, it was an honour to be visited by our Colonel in Chief in our new home, Leuchars Station.
 
“Her Majesty took great interest in the work the regiment is doing both here in the UK, supporting UK resilience and overseas on numerous training missions.”
