Meghan’s emblem perfectly marries her old and new identities.
According to the Kensington Palace, the blue symbolizes the Pacific Ocean and the two golden rays represent California sunshine. The shield sits on a field of poppies, California’s state flower, and wintersweet, a flower that grows at Kensington Palace.
The three quills featured on the Coat of Arms stand for communication and the power of words, reports E! News. The lion on the left matches Prince Harry’s English lion. The songbird on the right symbolizes Meghan herself. The bird’s open beak and raised wings again represent communication.
Finally, the left side of the shield is broken into quadrants. The first and fourth quarters depict English lions. The lion of Scotland appears in the second, and the harp of Ireland is featured in the third.
