The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Badge

The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Badge
The Queen was named Royal Colonel of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders on her 21st birthday in 1947, when she was still Princess Elizabeth. She carries on that association today.
For events with the battalion, she can be spotted wearing a brooch version of their badge, which features the regiment's insignia and name surrounded by a wreath of thistle.
