Appointed by The Queen in August 2019, Patricia Sawers is the Lord-Lieutenant of Angus and is the representative of the Crown in Angus

The main duties of a Lord-Lieutenant are:
- to arrange visits by members of the Royal family and to escort Royal visitors
- to represent The Queen, including duties with the armed forces and presenting certain honours, medals and awards
- to assess nominations for honour, both personal and for The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service and to encourage good nominations for both
- to liaise with local units of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Royal Air Force, The Army, The Reserve Forces and their associated Cadet Forces
The Lord-Lieutenant is supported by a Vice Lord-Lieutenant and by Deputy Lieutenants.
