El Ejercito Magnifico, Regimental Guide (5)
Today's subject is Regimiento linea de Principe Corona, occasionally styled HRH Own Foot in English. The Crown Prince, when there is one, is the colonel-proprietor of this regiment. It is considered in foreign circles to be something of a "barracks show-horse" regiment, because it always shows up well in the annual maneuvers, yet is rarely (like the Guardia Real) hazarded in the field.
The black facings and lace worn by the regiment are a recent development, introduced by HRH Joern Carlos three years ago, when he took formal proprietorship at the age of sixteen.
Both the Leibfahne and Regimentsfahne are shown.
