The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new conjugal coat of arms combines the shield granted to Prince William on his 18th birthday by the Queen and Kate's shield, which was created for the Middleton family ahead of the couple's wedding.
William's shield is shown on the left and shows a variety of Royal emblems from different parts of the UK: the three lions of England, the lion of Scotland and the harp of Northern Ireland
It is surrounded by a blue garter bearing a motto, translated as "Shame to those who think evil of it," which symbolises the Order of the Garter.
The Middleton family's coat of arms on the right is divided into two colours: red and blue. The three acorns represent the three Middleton children, Kate, Pippa and James and it is surrounded by a wreath of oak to balance the Duke's garter.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a new coat of arms to represent them as a married couple, Kensington Palace has announced.
The Conjugal Coat of Arms, shown publicly for the first time today, was approved by the Queen this year and combines William's coat of arms and Kate's shield from the Middleton family coat of arms.
