Meghan Markle’s Father Is Receiving an Important Honor Before the Royal Wedding
As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare for their wedding in May, Meghan’s family may get a big gift of their own before the big day.Peoplereports that Meghan’s family, and in particular her father, Thomas Markle, will receive a family coat of arms, which is traditionally given to the father of the bride before a royal wedding. Kensington Palace and the College of Arms, which creates the coats of arms, did not comment about a possible coat of arms, but it’s fair to assume it will happen.
Michael Middleton, Duchess Kate’s father, received one a week before Prince William married his daughter. That coat of arms featured three acorns, representing their three children, Kate, Pippa and James, and also representing their area of West Berkshire, which has many oak trees. Oaks are also symbols of England and strength.
There’s a gold chevron in the middle of the coat of arms, and that represents Kate’s mother, Carole, whose maiden name is Goldsmith. There are also symbols of their love of the outdoors, and the colors of the U.K. flag.
Two years after their big day, William and Kate unveiled their own Conjugal Coat of Arms. That coat of arms, which goes with typical tradition, features separate shields representing both husband and wife.
The shields are being supported by Prince William’s Supporters of the Royal Lion and Unicorn, and they feature a white label of three points around their necks. One of those points has a red escallop shell representing Princess Diana’s family coat of arms.
The British royals love nothing if not tradition, so here’s betting the Markles will get their own coat of arms—and Harry and Megan’s will be created soon after that.
