Coat of Arms of Prince Charles of Wales
Coat of Arms
of Prince Charles of Wales
"Prince Charles of Wales"

Charles Philip Arthur George
on November 14, 1948
to the Duke of Edinburgh Philip Mountbatten
and Princess Elizabeth (present Queen of England)

Prince Charles was granted his heraldic achievement (or coat of arms) at the age of 13.
It contains the following "royal devices" or symbols:

First note that mythological animals and imaginative creatures,
monsters and hybrids are popular devices in heraldry and, in
heraldic language, are referred to as "beasts."

This beast on the left-hand side of Charles' coat of arms has the head
and mouth of a lion, the body of a leopard, and the feet of a bear.
Typically in heraldry, lions have only three claws per foot while
bears will have four or five. This lion has four claws and thus
resembles those of a bear. Traditionally in heraldry, the lion has
represented England, however Prince Charles' heraldic
representation is totally unique in history even differing from that of
his mother's, Queen Elizabeth, whose lion has the typical three
claws per foot.

(Rev 13:2 KJV) And thebeast which I saw was like unto al eopard,
and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as them ou th
of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and
great authority.

Note the design around the lion's neck. This image is called the "eldest-son label" and
has been described by Tim Cohen (The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea, pg. 124) as "three
parallel horns which are, in a manner of speaking, 'plucked out by the roots' (i.e., turned
upside down)." The eldest-son label is a "distinctive mark" of all succeeding Princes of
Wales. Other members of the British royal family have labels that have more than three
descending "horns." There are a total of five eldest-son labels on the coat of arms: on the
left-side lion, the head lion, the unicorn, the red dragon, and at the top of the center shield
where 10 lions are depicted.

(Dan 7:8 KJV) I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another
little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and,
behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

This region presented on the left is from the top of
Charles' shield and is thus called the "head" of the
overall coat of arms. Pictured is another lion with the
eldest-son label around its neck standing on top of a
crown and a "gold helm." The helm is made up of
seven curved bars or "horns." These seven horns,
along with the three horns from the eldest-son label
make a total of 10 horns in the head region of the coat
of arms.

(Dan 7:20 KJV) And of the ten horns that were in his
head, and of the other which came up, and before
whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a
mouth that spake very great things, whose look was
more stout than his fellows.

Note that Daniel speaks of 10 horns in his head, i.e., singular head, not plural. The word
for "head" here is the Aramaic noun "resh" which corresponds to the Hebrew "rosh." It
often refers to the head as a body part, or could be that of an animal or statue. It
sometimes refers to a leader or "chief" as well.

To the right of the head of the coat of arms is a representation of a
unicorn. "In heraldry, this unicorn represents not only Scotland, but
also a counterfeit Christ" (Cohen, pg 184). Symbolically, the
unicorn in the past has represented Alexander the Great (Dan 8:5,
goat with one horn) and Antiochus Epiphanes, a type of anti-Christ
(Dan 8:9, "a little horn"). Mythologically, the unicorn probably
originated in ancient Babylon and today is a symbol adopted by
New Agers to represent "a great world leader" whom they expect to
bring world peace to earth. Interestingly, in "Christian" symbolism,
the unicorn has also represented the Virgin Mary.

In heraldry, and even historical representations, the unicorn's eyes
are round and black, i.e., no visible eye-whites. (Queen Elizabeth's
heraldic unicorn is depicted as thus.) Charles' design has the eyes
shaped more like those of a human with noticeable eye-whites,
(although not easily recognized in this particular copy.)

(Dan 7:8 KJV) ...and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth
speaking great things.

Note the chain leading from the unicorn and connecting it to the base of the arms
(directly above the red dragon.) In heraldry this chain functions as a "restrainer" (cf. 2
Thess 2:6-7).
