In 1937 Her Majesty The Queen became Colonel-in-Chief of The Black Watch. Her husband, George VI, came to the throne in 1937 following the death of his father, George V, in 1936 and the abdication of his brother, Edward VIII, less than a year later. On the death of the King she became Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. The Queen Mother was the Regiment's longest serving Colonel-in-Chief, remaining in the role until her death in 2002.
