A little over two months has passed since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding day, and the couple has already benefitted from their status as a married couple, title being the most obvious among other perks like cottages gifted by the Queen.
While Markle was presented with her very own royal monogram and coat of arms shortly after the wedding day, the Duchess of Sussex and her husband have finally gone public with their joint monogram. The new combined cypher shows the couple’s initials “H” and “M” intricately combined together under one unified cursive cypher.

A coronet rests atop their intertwined cypher, and it features two crosses, two strawberry leaves and four fleurs-de-lys, like the others commissioned under the Royal Warrant of 1917.
The couple’s elegant and updated conjugal cypher was revealed last week by one of the hosts of Australia’s Today Show. Co-presenter Georgie Gardner shared how she had received a thank you letter from the Palace after sending along a wedding present.
The Duke and the Duchess apologized in the note for the delay.

Markle’s coat of arms was carefully designed by both the Duchess herself and the Queen. It includes elements of her native California among other symbolic new references about Markle’s entrance into life as a royal.
