The Royal Welsh Regiment

On the 1st March 2006 the two line Welsh Infantry regiments combined to form a new regiment - The Royal Welsh. Between 2006 and 2014 the title of the Royal Welch Fusiliers was retained as 1st Battalion Royal Welsh (The Royal Welch Fusiliers). With further defence cuts in 2014 the 1st and 2nd Battalions were combined to for the 1st Battalion, The Royal Welsh (23rd/24th/41st of Foot). The values, traditions and heritage of the Royal Welch Fusiliers are now preserved in the regular 1st Battalion, The Royal Welsh and the Reserve 3rd Battalion, The Royal Welsh.
The Regiment is proud to announce that The Royal Welsh will be presented new colours (Regimental flags) by a member of the Royal Family this summer. This event will take place on 11 June, in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.
