Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment and Queen's Regiment Museum
The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment formed in 1992, from the amalgamation of The Queen’s Regiment and The Royal Hampshire Regiment. It is the proud inheritor of a history extending back to the very earliest beginnings of the British Army.
The museum’s collection traces the history of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, direct successor of twelve forbear regiments including the great line regiments of Surrey, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and Middlesex.
Starting in 1572 a series of displays, interactive videos and recordings takes the visitor right up to the Regiment’s recent operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
