Kilt pins are, quite simply, pins used on the lower front apron of kilts. Though popular now, kilt pins are a relatively recent addition to kilt attire. Folklore suggests usage began in the Victorian era, and provides one with a delightful anecdote on its origins. During a visit to Balmoral Castle, Queen Victoria inspected the famed Douglas Highlanders, a regiment noted for its bravery. The wind blew fierce and one young soldier encountered great difficulty holding his position. Kilts are frequently worn without undergarments and the queen noticed the soldier's struggle to appear modest and yet stand still. Taking a brooch from her own clothing, she kindly pinned the soldier's kilt.
