From the Site of the Swedish State Archives the CoA of HRH Prince Nicolas, Duke of Ångermanland. Youngest child of HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Mr Chris O’Niell. The Swedish Royal Coat of Arms with the Arms of the Province of Ångermanland in the third Quarter. On the Shield a Ducal Crown (the Title of Duke or Duchess is in Sweden a purely honorific title granted to members of the Royal Family. The Shield is surrounded by the chain of the Order of the Seraphim. Prince Nicolas recieved the Order upon his Baptism.
An interesting thought just occurred to me.
I wonder whether the person responsible for suggesting Prince Nicolas’ title did so because the arms of the Duchy of Ångermanland allude to the O’Niell arms?
It would suggest that the title was not just the next on the list or, if it was, a very happy accident.
Interesting tought Iain. But I don’t think that was the case.
