A New Swedish Duchess

Postby Chris Green » 12 Mar 2018, 11:08

Princess Madeleine, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland, and her husband Mr Christopher O'Neill, have a new daughter, Adrienne Josephine Alice. She is to be Duchess of Blekinge, the first time ever that Blekinge has had a Duke/Duchess.

Princess Adrienne's arms will doubtless be the usual royal arms with the arms of Blekinge in Q3.

Here are her mother's arms:

and here are the arms of Blekinge:

Mr O'Neill has no arms of his own, and even if he had, they would not feature on the arms of his daughter.

The three crowns of Sweden taking possession of the oaks of Blekinge (a valuable asset in the days of sail).

The Blekinge arms - and especially as rendered in the OP - are quite nice!
