Princess Mary’s Coat of Arms

According to the Danish Royal Watchers, new coats of arms which have been designed  for Crown Princess Mary and her father Professor John Donaldson. All holders of Danish Royal Orders require coats of arms for display in the Chapel of Frederiksborg Castle Chapel, and both the Princess and her father have received Danish awards. According to a News Limited  report on 3 June, 2007, a “mystery” golden rose is among symbols chosen by Crown Princess Mary, who did not reveal her reason.  Other symbols include two seven-point stars for her Australian roots, and two red eagles and a ship in homage to her Scottish ancestry. The papers report that Danish designer Ronny Andersen spent more than a year designing and painting both shields, in consultation with Australian and Scottish experts.  “The princess has been involved every step of the way. She chose the rose herself. It is a personal matter for her," he said. "I think it is a symbol of femininity and beauty."  News Limited says that Danish royal observers have speculated the rose is a floral tribute to Mary’s late mother Henrietta, who died of a heart condition.
