    Queen is exposed to Highland game

    Having one's picture taken sitting next to the Queen is usually no sniggering matter.

    Particularly when it's an official photograph of the battalion in full uniform and Her Majesty is there in her role as commander of the armed forces.

    But Colonel Simon West didn't appear to be taking the occasion too seriously yesterday.

    In his cap, jacket and spats, his hands on his knees and his ankles crossed, he sat proudly in the front row of the 1st Battalion of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, next to the Queen.

    But unlike his comrades, he hadn't taken the time to adjust his sporran and kilt for decency.

    So the kilt flapped about for all the world to see. And judging by the grin on his face, the colonel knew exactly what he was doing.

    Onlookers said the Queen didn't notice what was happening next to her. But she does not exactly appear comfortable in the photograph.

    She was visiting the battalion at Howe Barracks in Canterbury, Kent, to present medals after their recent tour of duty in Iraq.
