In 1797 the Staffordshire Militia was inspected by George III. He was so impressed with the regiment’s smart appearance that he ordered it to Windsor Castle to take up royal duties. It was stationed there again in 1799, 1800 and 1801, when it was disbanded. The King expressed great regret at its departure; however when hostilities with France were renewed in 1803, the regiment was reformed and ordered back to Windsor.
