The Royal Family have been wearing their new medals for Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee.
The Queen's Platinum Jubilee medal was on full display at St. Paul's Cathedral Friday when the male members of the Royal Family were spotted wearing them on their morning suits.
All senior male royals were sporting the Platinum Jubilee medal, as were non-working members like Prince Harry, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Jack Brooksbank.
The design, unveiled last September, was created by Timothy Noad of the College of Arms and features The Queen's portrait with the inscription
Elizabeth II Dei Gratia Regina Fid Def, which means
Elizabeth II, By the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith.
Its reverse features the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom outside of Scotland. The medal itself is nickel silver, and the ribbon attached to it has edges of silver, blue and red to represent the medals issued for the Silver Jubilee in 1977, the Golden Jubilee in 2002, and the Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
In addition to the Royal Family, others entitled to wear the Platinum Jubilee medal include
serving frontline members of the police, fire, emergency services, prison services and Armed Forces, according to the UK Government website. Individual George and Victoria Cross recipients have also received the Platinum Jubilee medal.
The female members of the Royal Family will have also received The Queen's Platinum Jubilee medal; however, there are fewer dress occasions where they will wear theirs in public.
