However, yet again I'm handballing to Warren to provide some visual examples (if you don't mind me doing so Warren).
Some of these are quite large, so I'll post them over a period of time.

Hallo there Crisinaki!
As the house was established during the reign of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the Royal arms didn't change (as the previous arms had involved the removal of the Hanovarian equine arms). Thus the Royal Arms of the House of Windsor comprises of: [England]; Gules three lions passant guardent in pale (yellow), and langued Azure (which means on a background of red), in the first and fourth quarters, [Scotland]; the rampant lion and double tressure fleury-counter-fleury in the second quarter and [Ireland] the harp in the thrid quarter. The development however, has been far more complex in some cases, arms have lasted for only one reign before being arranged by the succeeding monarch (as was the case in the successions of Queen Mary I by Queen Elizabeth I, and King William III and Queen Mary II by Queen Anne.

Arms of Princess Catharina-Amalia and Princess Alexia:

See this picture.

What does these arms tell us about its owner?

The arms are covered by a royal crown and an ermine mantle:
the owner is a member of a royal family

In I and III we see the Lion of the Netherlands and of Nassau:
the owner has something to do with the Netherlands and with the family of Nassau

In II and IV we see the Horn of Orange:
the owner has something to do with the family of Orange

In the heartshield we see the arms of Zorreguieta:
the owner has a descendance to the Zorreguieta family

José Antonio de Sorreguieta y Oyarzabal, Gamboa y Sagastume

The Zorreguieta arms are derived from don José Antonio de Sorreguieta y Oyarzabal, Gamboa y Sagastume, a direct male descendant of Máxima and her father Jorge Horacio Zorreguieta Stefanini.

However the descendance can be traced back to 1560, Don José Antonio de Sorreguieta y Oyarzabal, Gamboa y Sagastume (born 1777) is seen as the 'founder' of the Argentinean Zorreguieta's. He was a native of the village of Tolosa, that was established in the Virreinato del Río de la Plata toward end of the 18th century.

He settled in the city of La Salta in where he figured as a rich merchant and where he contracted a marriage with Doña Micaela Antonia Maurin Baamonde, with whom he left a noticeable and prolific descent.

The Netherlands High Council of Nobility was helped by Spanish and Argentinean genealogical and heraldical institutes and finally the Zorreguieta arms are described as 'A fortified castle with three towers, in red, flanked at both sides by a black wolve, stretching in front of a green cypres'.

She will maintain all the orders with symbols she recivede when she was married to Prince Joachim..it is the same with her own Coats of arms because she is having the order of the elefant witch is the higest order her in Denmark. It is a bit hard for me to say witch orders she have because she is not at the homepage of the royal family after her wedding this weekend.

When a woman marries into the royal family does she automatically get all teh elements of her husbands standard? for exampl ewhen William marries, will his wife's standard bear the three pointed label with the escallop shell? or will she just receive the normal arms of the royal family?

Depends on the fact if her family has a coat of arms.
Usually a combination of both arms are used, like was done for Camilla of Cornwall's beautiful arms, see picture.

Inside it has both the Royal Arms as well the boar from the Arms of the late Major Bruce Middleton Hope Shand. And it is flanked by a lion crowned with a princely crown and a boar with a crown. Camilla's Arms reflect her position of married woman who is not herself a heraldic heiress.
