List of Royal Warrant holders of the British Royal Family
British Royal Warrants are currently granted by Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales to companies or tradespeople who supply goods and services. The warrant enables the supplier to advertise the fact that they supply to the royal family. Royal Warrants are only awarded to tradesmen. The professions, employment agencies, party planners, the media, government departments, and "places of refreshment or entertainment" (such as pubs and theatres) do not qualify. The Merchandise Marks Act 1887 makes it illegal for companies to falsely claim that they have a Royal Warrant.
HM the Queen has granted 686 Royal Warrants.
HRH the Prince of Wales has granted 159 Royal Warrants.
HRH the Duke of Edinburgh has granted 38 Royal Warrants.
