Duchess of California Gets New Coat of Arms

I disappointed my sister by being unable to find an excuse last weekend to blog about the royal wedding, so I’m going to make up for it today by blogging about the new coat of arms for the Duchess of California Sussex, aka Meghan Markle. As you can see, it’s chock full of California symbolism. Once again, California leads the nation in mocking Donald Trump, who will never have a real coat of arms of his own.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
