Just one question: do the Monaco Princes and Princesses have their own coat of arm and cypher or is it just a privilege for the reigning sovereign? I have no clue. Thanks :)

I believe the coat of arms for the princely family of Monaco is undifferenced with the various members of the family, but many of their monograms can be found here: Category:Royal monograms of Monaco - Wikimedia Commons. I haven't seen one for Princess Charlene yet.

I was just wondering why HRH prince Edward,Earl of wessex has a different coat of arms compared to that of his brothers, unless that is the coat of arms for a count of Wessex.

All members of the Royal Family have different Coat of Arms, which are based on the Royal Arms that has remained unchanged since 1830's.

The Coat of Arms of Prince Edward is almost exactly the same as Prince Andrew's with one difference; where Prince Andrew has the blue anchor (symbolising his career at the Navy), Prince Edward has the Tudor rose. Prince Charles' Coat of Arms is quite distinctive, because he has also incorporated the traditional Coat of Arms of the Principality of Wales (symbolising his status as the Prince of Wales).

Prince Edward, as son of the Sovereign, is entitled to Arms with three point label.
Grandchildren of the Monarch, with the exception of Prince William (as the eldest son of the Prince of Wales) are entitled to Arms with five point label.

There isn't a Coat of Arms for an Earl of Wessex; the title was created in its second creation for Prince Edward on the day of his wedding to Sophie.
The last holder of the first creation of the title, William FitzOsbern, died back in 1071

Royal monogramme/cipher button

Hi all,
I'm new here and joined with the hope of some help from the specialists.
My hobby are uniform buttons and occasionally we also strike brick walls.
I've recently added a few more buttons and one in particular has a Royal cipher that I cannot crack, photo attached. I believe that it could be either French, Spanish or Portuguese.
Any help is much appreicated.
Rgds,
button_guru

Has anyone seen a monogram for Princess Charlene of Monaco yet?

How about monograms from any of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein?

Does Kate Middleton put motto in her coat of arms? Why or why not?

Diana's motto in her coat of arms is "God defends the right."
What is Kate's, if she has?
Or why she doesn't have, if she doesn't have?

Just wondering if anyone could help! The Omega literally means "The Great O". Perhaps this could be "The Great King Otto".

The dual cypher of Albert and Charlene is at the top of the family's official web page. I don't know if that helps.

Mottos are not a compulsory part of a coat of arms, and when granted to you by either the Lord Lyon or the College of arms, its really up to the petitioner if they want one. Arms are in themselves meant to give a 'motto', and the Middleton one hopes to accomplish that.

In reference to the coats of arms above, the labels would be differenced as they always have been according to the rules of heraldry.

1st Son of Sovereign: Plain white label
2nd Son of Sovereign: A crescent, although this mark of cadency can somtimes be catered to the grantee.

The arms would also probably be granted around their 18th birthday, and would not change if they became Dukes.

I think it's been posted in some other threads too. I'm curious about people's opinions of it. I find it a bit plain and boring.

I like Princess Estelle's monogram, It is simple yet elegant. I think it is one of my favorite monograms. I have always been a fan of the simple ones like Queen Elizabeth II's EIIR. I'm sure that when she becomes Queen Regent her monogram will change, however for a Royal Princess I think it is perfect.

I love Sarah, Duchess of York's coat of arms! I think it so clever how Beatrice has three bees on her label of difference.

My favorite coat of arms has got to be the coat of arms of the United Kingdom, I love the way it looks.
