Middleton Coat of Arms

The British public has been favoured with the interpretation of Michael Middleton's arms for Catherine:
but what arms were granted to him and in what degree? Will the helm be for a gentleman or for something else; will there be a coronet underneath the helm? Aren't we allowed to know yet? After all, if Catherine is to be made (as rumoured), a Princess of the United Kingdom in her own right and (DV) produce a presumptive heir to the throne, is her father to remain Mr Michael Middleton? Time will tell.


  1. I understand Mr Middleton commissioned this decorative gift tag himself so that he and his entire family might now use it. Perhaps we should be grateful. With Miss Middleton's lineage the design could have been as condescending to the Commoner as Princes William and Harry choosing to speak as they do; as if from a long line of market traders.

  2. It's all going to hell in a handcart, if you ask me.
