Today we were delighted to welcome His Royal Highness, The Duke of Kent to The Black Watch Castle and Museum.

The Black Watch Castle and Museum’s CEO Anne Kinnes and Chairman Major General Michael Riddell-Webster introduced the Duke to the team and led a tour through the Museum galleries. The tour highlighted the story of Captain Fergus Bowes-Lyon, brother to HRH, The Queen Mother, who served with The Black Watch and was killed in action during the First World War. The Duke also had the opportunity to view objects, uniforms and paintings related to the Royal connections with The Black Watch Regiment.

Anne Kinnes explained, “It is an absolute pleasure to welcome HRH, The Duke of Kent to The Black Watch Castle and Museum and share with him The Black Watch connections to the Royal family.”
