Queen's Royal Hussars
The Queen's Royal Hussars (QRH) is the senior United Kingdom armoured regiment.
It was formed on 1 September 1993 from the amalgamation of the Queen's Own Hussars and the Queen's Royal Irish Hussars.
The Colonel-in-chief of the regiment is Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
The Queen's Royal Hussars and its antecedents have been awarded 172 Battle Honours and eight Victoria Crosses.
The Queen's Royal Hussars Maasai beaded belt is based on their stable belt and is horizontal in style, with alternating stripes of dark blue, gold and green.
All of our belts are hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads.
We use the highest quality leather to ensure our belts are extremely long lasting and durable.
This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The old Queen's Royal Hussars tie is not a tie at all. It’s a Manyatta belt.
IMPORTANT - HOW TO MEASURE A BELT:
We believe in being totally honest with our customers. Like a bespoke suit or pair of shoes, outstanding craftsmanship takes time. When the order is placed, the mamas in Kenya start beading your belt, utilising their cultural and ancestral skills. Once this is complete, the belt is sent to us in the UK. For this reason, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
