We aren't typically so interested in the Royal Family, but our American princess, Meghan Markle, has captured our hearts and we're swooning at all the official protocol now that she's a Duchess.
Kensington Palace has revealed the Duchess of Sussex's Coat of Arms.
The Coat features two "Supporters". The Duke of Sussex's Supporter, the lion, appears alongside Meghan's Supporter, a songbird with open beak to connote the "power of communication". The Duke's Coat of Arms is "impaled", or placed side by side in the same shield, customary for married women. Therefore, Meghan's Coat of Arms is on the right in the Coat. The blue represents the Pacific, the golden rays representative of Markle's home state. The three quills "represent represent communication and the power of words" according to the Royal website.

The Duchess's Supporter is wearing a Coronet along her neck as opposed to on the head to signify Royal heritage. It is composed of two crosses patee, four fleurs-de-lys and two strawberry leaves. Along the grass lining the Shield at the bottom sits the California state flower, the golden poppy, along with wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace.
The Duchess of Sussex worked with the College of Arms thorughout the design process and the Coat of Arms was approved by Her Majesty The Queen.
Speaking of Coronets, we can't help but think of a few of our pieces that match the splendor of our songbird's.
