  • Train Description:
    The Clan Campbell chief coat of arms, presenting the king's paternal side, and the Clan Hay crest badge, representing his maternal side, are a nod to the king's Scottish heritage, evoking the chieftain and hunter. The Campbell crest has two snakeskin lions with manes and tails of brownish gold bugle bead fringe. Their blue sapphire eyes are the birthstones of the king and his nephew. The pearls in the crest are for birthdays of the king's mother and sister. The Latin phase means "Never forget." A boar's head is attached in relief on the Hay crest.
