Meghan Markle’s Coat of Arms Was Just Released
And it’s sentimental!
Good news! Meghan Markle’s family drama is behind her, and just days after the Royal Wedding to Prince Harry, Kensington Palace released her official coat of arms. This news is as exciting as finding out Meghan’s new official job title, obviously.
Meghan Markle’s coat of arms is set apart from the pack with personal touches like her home state’s flower, golden poppies, and wintersweet, a plant more commonly found on the grounds of Kensington Palace. Markle’s coat of arms was designed by the College of Arms and approved by the Queen herself. Impressive.
The new coat for the freshly minted Duchess of Sussex also includes a blue background to represent the Pacific Ocean off California’s coast, and two golden rays to symbolize the Golden State. The supporters on both sides of the shield (that’s what they’re formally known as), are a songbird and a golden lion wearing a crown.
