From Buckingham Palace:
Following His Majesty’s Accession, The King is pleased to announce further military appointments for working Members of the Royal Family. The new appointments will continue to reflect the close relationship between the Armed Forces and the Royal Family in His Majesty’s reign.
The Princess of Wales
– Commodore-in-Chief, Fleet Air Arm
– Colonel-in-Chief, 1st Queen’s Dragoon Guards
– Royal Honorary Air Commodore, R.A.F. Coningsby
The Princess of Wales’s existing military appointments include Colonel, Irish Guards and Royal Honorary Air Commodore of the Air Cadets. Her Royal Highness is also Sponsor of HMS Glasgow – the first of the Royal Navy’s new Type 26 Frigates which is currently under construction. The Princess’s grandfather served in the Royal Air Force.
We’re looking forward to learning more about the Princess of Wales’ new military appointments as well as any future events she will attend in her new role. We know that Catherine will represent them wonderfully. We’ll also begin working on a page dedicated to her military appointments in the future.
