Middletons create a coat of arms
If you're British elite, you're expected to have a coat of arms, in effect, a family badge. When people marry, their coats of arms are merged.
There's only one problem for the current royal romance -- Kate Middleton's family does not have a coat of arms. So Michael Middleton and his wife Carol are making one.
They have chosen acorns to represent oak trees that are common around their family home. Kate specifically asked for oak sprigs as they were more decorative. There is gold to represent Carol's maiden name -- Goldsmith. The chevrons represent mountains reflecting the family's interest in hill walking and skiing.
