Meghan Markle Honored with Coat of Arms as Duchess of Sussex



A Coat of Arms has been created for The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle with approval from The Queen and Thomas Woodcock.

According to the official statement, Meghan worked closely with the College of Arms throughout the design process to create a Coat of Arms that was both personal and representative.

Meghan’s Coat of Arms features a songbird symbolising the “power of communication” and it has been joined with Prince Harry‘s royal lion Coat of Arms.

The Arms features represent her home state of California as well as her new life as a member of the Royal Family.

The blue background of the shield represents the Pacific Ocean while two golden rays symbolise the famous Californian sunshine.

Beneath the shield on the grass also sits a collection of golden poppies which are California’s state flower and wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace.

    Dear Parents,

    This is a lesson to you and to all intending parents.

    So your child likes dancing, singing, acting, cooking, talking, etc…every other thing that does not lead to being a doctor, finance guy, lawyer, banker, business entrepreneur…..

    JUST ENCOURAGE THEM ! Don’t beat the living daylight out of them saying other kids are solving maths, winning quizzes, or killing at debates.

    Every talent and legal means to an end that causes no harm and defaults to humanity should be encouraged.

    Once upon a time when dreaming to be an actress was a total abomination! Once upon a time when being a talkative was a spiritual problem parents took their kids for deliverance upon! Once upon a time when extra curricular activities were not a route to pursue for so called educated families.

    Long story short…Meghan was an actress…seen on tv by the prince….delighted the prince…and the rest is history.
    ALL HAIL THE DUCHESS, what was once an ordinary person.

    Finally the most important people in the world today are not the ones who went all out till PHd. level….they are just ordinary people who luck met while perfecting their extra curricular activities….OPRAH, SERENA, STEVE JOBS, RICHARD BRANSON, SIMON COWELL.

    If you do have an opportunity to be educate your kids, of course go all the way, but if things don’t turn out in that part, let them sharpen a skill…you never know where it will take them.

    Good luck.

      Yes he’s a Spencer and even more handsome than Harry. He’s also a red head. Search on the royal pages in Instagram. He’s cute and very single.

      Felinda – can’t be found in Buckingham Palace but can be found in an equally impressive Althorp Estate (owned by the Spencers.) Louis Spencer is cute.

    Hmnn. Na the two other women I pity. Harry’s exes. They said they don’t want to be in the public eye. What is the big deal about being known. They lost. Omaseo.

      They didn’t lose anything abeg. Do you know how stressful it can be being in the public eye. Every single you do is scrutinised. She can’t just go anywhere or do anything. There will always be some protocol or another for her to follow. Sounds like hell to me.

      I’ve been watching a documentary on ITV Choice called ‘The Windsor brides’. If you watch it, you will not envy Meghan. You will just wish her well. They actually referred to marrying into the family as being in a golden cage. The general consensus was,who would want to marry into that establishment? Very interesting. She can literally not do anything without permission. As in, Prince Harry had to ask the Queen’s permission before he could wear that uniform for his wedding! She can’t even travel on a whim to see her mom or friends. I pray for her sake she can cope. She should just stick with Kate and follow her lead honestly.

      Ok o Tolu. Maybe it’s because I believe that a bigger platform gives bigger influence if my motive is right. Eg if I want more women to be financially independent,being a queen would help me in terms of number. Anyway, not everyone can handle it. This world does not last forever so very all God says you can be of course not everyone is called to be queen

      I don’t pity them oooo they dodged a bullet and now they have in my opinion the best of both worlds. Theyre friends with Harry, rich in their own right (family wise) and MOST iMPORTANTLY they will get to marry who they love- I don’t think they loved him really REALLY if they did they would have put up with it and also Meghan can cope she is already famous as an actress.

      What is the big deal? You lose your freedom! You cant go anywhere unsupervised. Heck, you cant even go to MacDonalds. Diana had a taste and left. It isnt all that its cracked up to be. Some people aren’t cut out for that life, so Harry’s exes didnt lose anything. They will still have happy and fufilled lives that is out of public eye.

    The coat of arms looks funny though…what’s up with the lying flashing his tongue like that in mockery of something. And that bird looks surprised too????

      That is definitely a tribute to Prince Harry and his sticking tongue out habit

    We are are born and socialised differently.
    No two people are the same. So, don’t feel sorry for the former girl friends.
    They knew their limits and backed off early.
    You can live a happy, simple and fulfilling life without a tittle.
    Megan , is the opposite and us allowed to be. I will be praying for her.
    Personally, I would not consider a politician, pastor for a husband no matter how rich and influential they may be. There’s peace in simple lives and that is my view. You are entitled to yours.
    To each their own!
