The College of Arms is the official repository of the coats of arms and pedigrees of English, Welsh, Northern Irish and Commonwealth families and their descendants. Its records also include official copies of the records of Ulster King of Arms the originals of which remain in Dublin.

The Duchess of Cornwall has been granted a new coat of arms by Her Majesty The Queen to signify her position as wife of the heir apparent to the throne. Click here for an image of the arms and a full description and explanation.

The arms of Major Shand, used in the sinister half of the Duchess' shield, are blazoned as follows:
