Camilla donned a Rifles green coat dress and a bugle brooch as she carried out the historic engagement. To honour their new Colonel-in-Chief, The Rifles gave the Duchess of Cornwall a special fanfare as she arrived at Beachley Barracks in Chepstow.
This face-to-face engagement was carried out in line with the safety measures still in place in the UK to quash the spread of coronavirus.
After the warm welcome, Camilla met soldiers from the 1st Regiment at the Barracks while staying a safe two-metre distance.
Neither the Duchess nor the people attending the engagement wore face masks.
However, the event took place outside, where Government guidelines don't require Britons to use face coverings.
