If Stephanie follows the tradition, she will incorporate her family Coat of Arms into that of her future husband's.
The end result would probably be something like this.


Unmarried ladies usually have their Arms depicted on a lozenge and with a blue ribbon (symbol of spinsters). Once married, the Arms are depicted on a shield.
For example, the Duchess of Cambridge's family Coat of Arms were incorporated into that of Prince William's, creating this end result.

AMAZING.

Thanks much, Warren! The 2nd photo, or de Lannoy Blazon, is the one I was referring to as particularly beautiful.

Also, great information Artemisia-the photoshopped image of the combined de Lannoy/Nassau arms is quite impressive!

A good example of imaginative can be found in the Danish Royal House, where a totally new cypher, different from Joachim's and Marie's individual monograms was created on the occasion of their wedding:

Joachim:


Marie:


Dual Cypher - Joachim and Marie:


Same with Joachim and Alexandra:

I guess not every family has a brilliant designer like Queen Margerethe. :)

Yes, but with some of those Danish and Swedish designs if you didn't already know whose monogram it was you might struggle to figure them out. More especially so as time goes by.

Sorry, but some of those Danish ones just look wrong to me. Joachim's in particular looks like some sort of airline's logo.

And these British ones is easier to understand?

Why have a monogram and what is it's official purpose and use (I'm already aware of mongrams on bone china to celebrate royal weddings).

I don't know whether it's the official purpose of monograms or not, but they're mainly used on stationery, as letterhead, and as such for both private and official correspondence. When a lady-in-waiting/secretary writes on behalf of a Bristish royal, for instance, she/he writes on the same monogrammed stationery as the one the said royal uses for his private correspondence (I've seen this recently, on the occasion of Harry's jubilee tour, there was a girl who posted a typed letter she received from an official with Harry's monogram -- the girl had written to him and she posted a video showing the answer on youtube.) Stationery with individual monograms is used for individual correspondence, the one bearing the combined/wedding monogram is used when it's the couple who's writing. The Danish royals also use their wedding monograms on the cover of the order of service of the christenings of their children and on menus of banquets celebrating the couple's anniversaries (in the UK, as far as I know,they use their coat of arms instead.) Again in DK, we have Queen Margrethe's cypher as a monarch, for official correspondence (with the initials MR 2, Margrethe Regina the second), and another one depicting an M, used for her personal correspondence, then there's Prince Henrik's monogram and their wedding monogram, which also appears on menus when they celebrate their wedding jubilees. They also use their wedding monograms in wrought iron at the gates of castles, for example, Schackenborg had the combined monogram of Joachim and Alexandra on the gates, then it was replaced by the wedding monogram of Joachim and Marie after 2008.

British Monogram and Crown on silver

This is my first post and I hope I am doing it the correct way.
I recently purchased a piece of silver with a handle, at the top fo the handle is a monogram and crown. The piece is hallmarked with date letter for year 1881, and was originally retailed at White, Bond St., London. I have done some research, but have not been able to find an exact match.
Attached 2 pics, the first showing what I believe to be the front and the 2nd pic the back.
Any help in identifying the monogram would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
Eddie

The crown is definitely the British crown of a "Child of a Sovereign". I can't imagine whose initials they could be, though.

Thank you for your reply it gives me hope the mystery will one day be figured out. I was reasonably satisfied with it being British. I however can not decipher the monogram itself. First I thought 2 Cs front and reversed, then C & O, and lastly G and G in reverse. The center character on the other hand is one I absolutely no idea or guess. I do like a good mystery, so will continue the search. Once more, thank you.

Looks royal to me

This is a monogram WR with three plumed crown on a Bing & Grondahl porcelain dish, made in Denmark sometime between 1914 and 1947. Can anyone help me identify this? Thank you so much!

Welcome to the Royal Forums. The plumed crown seems to be the Prince of Wales's feathers, Prince of Wales's feathers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The prince of Wales between 1914 and 1937 was the future king Edward VIII, later the duke of Windsor. I wouldn't think that the dish was made for him personally, but rather for some organization, regiment or other that were connected to the Prince of Wales and was permitted to use the Prince of Wales's feathers as a part of their monogram.

The coronet is that of an Earl, of which there are many in Britain.

At yesterday's funeral of Alix della Faille de Leverghem, Countess de Lannoy two officers were seen bearing the Coat of Arms of the de Lannoys with OBIIT printed across the top.

Could Warren or some other knowledgeable person translate what that was, or what it meant?

Thanks.
