Comments on the arms:

I wonder if there is any relationship here with the Prince of Wales three-feather badge (see either through the Edward the Black Prince or his mother, Philippa of Hainault (Belgium)?
Santiago Dotor, 16 January 2004

The coat-of-arms is of ancient origin (first seal imprint 1571); its significance is unknown, but a connection to the Prince of Wales seems a little far-fetched to me.
