Yes, that's my understanding, too. As the head of the family, it is obligatory for Michael Middleton to make the formal request for a coat of arms to be created. I don't know if it's strictly required for Kate to have her own arms beforehand or just a long-standing tradition.

I don't think it is a requirement to have one before she marries.
I read a while ago (somewhere on this forum I think) that Sophie did not get hers until after her wedding to Edward.

Mr Middleton applied so the family can use it after Kate is married- kate's will combine with William and she did need it for marrying a Royal- James can use the Middletons also but Pippa can't use the shield one bc only men can.....pippa can use the one with the ribbon as it denotes an unmarried women

And Kate could have applied herself, anyone can but her father was the one who did so family could use it after marriage

Actually, Sophie did have a coat of arms prior to the wedding that apparently was not recognized and was redesigned prior to her marriage to Edward.

-------------------------


Sophie Rhys-Jones has had her 200-year-old family coat of arms redesigned in time for her marriage to Prince Edward on 19 June. It was designed by Peter Gwynne-Jones, the head of the College of Arms, and is based on the family's previous coat - which according to one report was not officially recognised.

Some photographers chased Kate down the street and had to be stopped by police protection officers.

This isn't good news to hear.

Thank you for the responses on the Coat of Arms for Catherine. I guess I am still in the dark about why one was needed. What are they used for in this day and age? Is it a status symbol for the family?

I don't think I have ever seen this picture: maybe she's calling William to tell him that he has to buy a new piece of luggage for their honeymoon because of her big shopping trip?

Doesn't post #423 explain it fairly easy to understand?

Apparently this jerk also made some other very nasty bigoted comments on his FB page as well. Truly a stupid person!!!

Buckingham Palace guard axed from royal wedding after Facebook slurs against bride Kate Middleton - mirror.co.uk

He called her a "posh ----." Its uncalled for and stupid but its nothing too outrageous. Victoria Beckham is being called similar names in the media every day. The guy should still be fired though.

From what I understand he wasn't fired for calling her a stuck up animal...it was the potential threat as well as the Anti Semitic remarks that got him removed from the wedding. Not fired...just not a part of wedding.

Don't be so sure, as doing this sort of thing does *not* put the Scots Guard in the best light. Nor do I think the Regiment wants this kind of a person serving the Regiment.

It wouldn't shock me to see this idiot lose his Commission when all is said and done. As he should.
