She would receive a Markle family crest which would then become part of a joint coat of arms with Prince Harry’s after the wedding.
Kate 's coat of arms was granted to her father, Michael Middleton, before her wedding to Prince William in 2011. It features three acorns symbolizing the three Middleton Children, Kate, Pippa and James.
If Meghan is to receive a coat of arms it will similarly be personal and designed with elements that symbolise her identity.
‘Every Coat of Arms has been designed to identify a person, school or organisation, and to last forever,’ Thomas Woodcock, Garter Principal King of Arms told Reuters at the time of Kate’s wedding.
But, it is unknown whether Meghan’s coat of arms will be granted to her father, Thomas, because he is a US citizen.
He would have to prove that he has an ancestor who was a subject of the Crown, or in other words British, before receiving one.
