In all of the articles that have recently been published as part of the hoopla surrounding the marriage on Friday of William Wales (I would have thought it would have been William Windsor, but apparently I am incorrect in that assumption) and Kate Middleton, and as a part of that the acquisition by her father of a coat of arms, I almost missed one published last Monday, April 25, in the New York NearSay, a "neighborhood newsletter" published on-line.
This particular article, by Pearl Duncan, entitled "Kate Middleton Owns a Coat of Arms, NY Author Reveals Hers," compares Ms. Middleton's new coat with the author's, which was granted by Lord Lyon in 2005.
It's a great little article, and is well worth the read. (There are also links to related stories of interest in other on-line publications.) You can find Ms. Duncan's article on-line at: http://newyork.nearsay.com/nyc/other/arts-culture-kate-middleton-owns-coat-arms-ny-author-reveals-hers
Happy New Year!
