Cap badge, other ranks, King's Royal Hussars, 1993, sealed pattern, 1993

The cap badge of this regiment depicts the Prussian Eagle, the insignia of the Royal House of Prussia. This was awarded by Princess Frederica of Prussia to one of the King's Royal Hussars' predecessors, the 14th Light Dragoons, in 1798. This was after the 14th had escorted her from Dover to London prior to her marriage to the Duke of York, the second son of King George III.
