Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall gets coat of arms to coincide with birthday

Updated:
LONDON (AP) _ Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will get a coat of arms on Sunday to coincide with her 58th birthday.

The blue, red, gold and green crest features a boar taken from the crest of her father, Maj. Bruce Shand and a lion copied from her husband Prince Charles' arms, Charles' office said.

Queen Elizabeth II took a ``keen interest'' in its creation, Clarence House added.

The duchess' coat of arms also has a crown _ the Coronet of the Heir Apparent _ copied from Charles' design. It was restricted to the heir's crest until King Charles II issued a warrant in 1661 so the heir's spouse could use the symbol too.

The duchess and Prince Charles were married in Windsor on April 9.

Prince William received his coat of arms, featuring a lion and unicorn, for his 18th birthday in 2000. Prince Harry helped design his own coat of arms for his 18th birthday in 2002, which includes an emblem from the crest of his mother, Princess Diana.
