Swansea Royal Welsh parade despite the Queen's absence

Help

A parade by 3rd Battalion the Royal Welsh has gone ahead in Swansea, despite the Queen being unable to attend because of a stomach upset.

Members of the battalion marched through the city, before being presented with leeks by Lord Lieutenant of West Glamorgan, Byron Lewis, in a ceremony to mark St David's Day.
