The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex now have their own official monogram.
It has been designed with the first letters of their names with a coronet (a small crown) placed above in a deep blue shade.
The world first had a glimpse of it on an Australian morning show yesterday. It was printed on a thank you note and signed by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Few weeks ago, Kensington Palace unveiled Meghan’s coat of arms featuring many elements that are personal to her such as blue background used on the shield that represents the Pacific Ocean off the California coast, while the two golden rays across the shield are symbolic of the sunshine of her home-state.
It also featured the coronet that has been used in the monogram. ‘Coronet laid down by a Royal Warrant of 1917 for the sons and daughters of the Heir Apparent. It is composed of two crosses patée, four fleurs-de-lys and two strawberry leaves,’ the palace announced at the time.
The newlyweds have been busy with various royal engagements and events, with another due to take place on August 4 when the pair will attend the wedding of Prince Harry’s school friend.
It is rumoured that Kate Middleton and Prince William will also be in attendance this Saturday, which consequently is the same day as Meghan’s 37th birthday, her first as the Duchess of Sussex.
The day will also hold a special meaning for the Queen as it’s the same day as her the late Queen Mother’s – Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon – birthday who passed away in 2002.
