Meghan Markle’s Coat of Arms Shows Just How Far the Royal Family Has Come

Kensington Palace has announced Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex has received her own Coat of Arms. While it’s customary for Royals to have heraldry, this coat of arms bucks traditions.

????Approved by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, this coat of arms has several nods to Meghan Markle’s California upbringing.

With a blue background symbolizing the Pacific Ocean, rays of sunlight, and the California state flower, golden poppies, this crest proves even the British Royal Family can’t take the west coast girl out of Markle.????Her shield is set next to Prince Harry’s, and is supported by the Duke’s lion, and the Duchess’ songbird with an open beak and three quills to symbolize communication and the power of words.

????Traditionally, a family coat of arms is presented to a royal bride’s father prior to the wedding, with the bride taking a derivative of that crest as her own.

Kate Middleton’s father, Michael Middleton was presented with a family crest with three acorns to symbolize his three children and a gold bar in honor of the maiden name of the Duchess of Cambridge’s mother, Goldsmith.

????If Thomas Markle, the Duchess of Sussex’s father, had been granted a coat of arms, his other children would have been allowed to use it.????While she is not the first to do so, in a true feminist move, the Duchess of Sussex has a coat of arms that stands on its own without her patriarchal or Markle family ties.??
