In this painting the subject, HRH The Prince Charles Duke of Rothesay, is depicted dressed in his uniform as Colonel-in-Chief of The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment). Colonels-in-chief were Royal patrons, and provided a link between the Regiment and the Royal Family. This role was symbolic of the monarch’s role as leader of the armed forces. The Black Watch has had only three colonels-in-chief during its history: HM George V (1912–1936); HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother (1937–2002), and HRH The Prince Charles Duke of Rothesay (2003–2006).
