The functions of the College relate to the bestowal of the various Knighthoods and Peerages of the authentic Orders of the Principality and to the devising & registering of Arms.

The Earl Marshal, as head of the RCH, works with both the Sovereign and the Heads of each Order by providing recommendations and assisting with relevant information as to the worthiness of the proposed recipient.

These honours are bestowed upon people for works or actions above and beyond the normal as a form of both official and public recognition of the efforts that have been expended by the recipient.

The Award is always accompanied by a Sovereign signed and registered certificate which states the name of the recipient, the reason for the bestowal of the honour/honours and detail as to the honour bestowed.

These awards and honours must always be earned and can never be purchased and as such are something held dear and with pride by their recipients!

The Royal College of Heraldry is also the place where a person may have their own Coat Of Arms designed and recorded and contact should be made direct with the College in order to obtain further advice regards all matters of heraldry.
