The Queen's Lancashire Regiment (QLR) was an infantry regiment of the British Army and part of the Kings Division.

It was formed in 1970 by the amalgamation of the two remaining Lancashire infantry regiments, the Lancashire Regiment (Prince of Wales' Volunteers) and the Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire).

Recent changes saw the Queen's Lancashire Regiment merged with the King's Regiment and the Kings Own Royal Border Regiment into the two battalion Duke of Lancasters Regiment (King's Lancashire and Border).
