Wedding W&C: Coat of Arms for Catherine Middleton and the Middleton family
Catherine Middleton, fiancée of HRH Prince William of Wales, and the Middleton family have a new Coat of Arms. After the Royal wedding on April 29, 2011, miss middleton's Coat of Arms will be merged with the Coat of Arms of Prince William to form her new Coat of Arms.
View Catherine Middleton's Coat of Arms HERE.
According to the official website about the wedding:
"The Middleton Family worked closely with the College of Arms throughout the design process to create a Coat of Arms that was personal to them and visually identified them as a family.
The three acorns represent Mr. and Mrs. Middleton’s three children (Catherine, Philippa and James). Acorns were chosen because the area in which the children were brought up – West Berkshire, England – is surrounded by oak trees. Additionally, oak is a long-established symbol of both ‘England’ and ‘Strength.’
The gold chevron, which sits at the centre of the design, represents Mrs. Middleton, whose maiden name is Goldsmith. The two thinner chevrons, which sit either side of the gold chevron, allude to hills and mountains and represent outdoor pursuits that the family enjoy together. The colours blue and red were chosen as they are the principle colours from the flag of the United Kingdom.
Miss Middleton’s Coat of Arms has been presented in the form of a ‘lozenge’ and is shown suspended from a ribbon, which indicates that she is an unmarried daughter."
