SIX businesses in Worcestershire that have a Royal Warrant will undergo some changes after the Queen passed on Thursday, September 8 aged 96. 

Royal Warrants are given to companies in order to prove it provides goods or services to the Royal Family. 

Many of them adorn the every day items that we use - from cereal boxes and cleaning supplies to bigger items such as carpets manufacturers and paint brushes.

Holding a Royal Warrant is a big achievement and an honour that dates back to the Royal charter of the 12 century. 

Companies can only apply for a Royal Warrant after they have been regular suppliers to the Royal household for a number of years.

What happens when the Grantor dies? 

Businesses with a Royal Warrant can display a Royal coat of arms and can advertise they provide goods or services 'by appointment to' that Royal. 

However, all Royal Warrants automatically expire on the death of the Royal who granted them.

Businesses then have two years to remove the coat of arms from their products, vehicles and stationary. 

This has affected 620 businesses that held Royal Warrants granted by the late Queen Elizabeth and six of them are in Worcestershire.

The company does not experience a significant amount of change when the grantor dies, but the Royal Warrant will become void or ineffective. 

The company (or individual) will then have two years to discontinue the use of Royal Arms as long as the company does not undergo significant changes. 

Now, the only Royal Warrants granted by the Prince of Wales, now King Charles III, are current.

The Royal Warrant Holders Association will be sharing the guidelines to warrant holders when appropriate. 

Although, King Charles III may grant more Royal Warrants as will the Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge once he is invested as Prince of Wales, and Queen Consort.
