Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, has been given a coat of arms.

What is a coat of arms?
It’s a drawing that represents a person, family or organisations.

Coats of arms date back to the 12th Century, when they were worn over armour in battle and in tournaments so that opponents could identify each other.

What’s Meghan’s coat of arms like?
According to Kensington Palace, Meghan’s coat of arms reflects her Californian background and includes a shield containing the colour blue, representing the Pacific Ocean, and rays, symbolising sunshine.

The lion supporting the shield relates to her husband, and the songbird relates to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan.
