http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_Guards says:

In 2002 the regiment arrived in Bosnia as part of SFOR, a NATO-led
force intended to ensure peace and stability reigns supreme in the
Balkan nation. During their deployment HM the Queen Mother died. A
number of officers of the Welsh Guards stood in vigil around the Queen
Mother's coffin which was lying in state in Westminster Hall, one of a
number of regiments to do so. The regiment returned home from their
deployment to Bosnia later in the year.

That's all I could find in a 10 minute search...
