 British Royal Family Arms
The Royal Arms we see today have evolved over nine centuries, since Richard 1st (the Lionheart) chose a shield of three lions to represent the three areas England, Normandy and Aquitane - which were associated with the English crown.
The Royal Arms were also used to symbolise the King's authority and, after Henry VIII became Supreme Head of the Church of England in 1534, they began to appear in churches, representing the connection between the monarch and the church.
As a woman she could not succeed to the throne of Hanover, so the shield of pretence was omitted from her Arms Apart from changes in the initials of the Sovereign, the Royal Arms have remained the same ever since.

 Howstuffworks "Who are the Duke of York, Duke of Kent, etc., and how did they get their titles?"
The head of the British royal family is Queen Elizabeth II, and she is the one who decides who are bona fide members of the family and what titles they will carry.
She is beloved in Britain, not just because of her royal standing, her aristocratic birth and her grandmotherly demeanor, but because she stayed in London during the horrible bombing in World War II when she could have taken her children to a safer place in the countryside.
She and her daughter are the only two members of the royal family who are referred to as "Her Majesty," an address that is reserved for kings and queens.

 Frontline: Pushkin Genealogy
Ibrahim was treated as no less than a member of the royal family at court and, in the biographical notes on him written either by his wife or by someone in her family shortly after his death, the following statement is made:
Considering that the defining line in a family's history was its patrilineal descent as it was just about anywhere else in the western world, Pushkin's preoccupation with his African ancestry is all the more telling since Ibrahim Gannibal was his maternal great-grandfather.
But no one has offered any insights as to how the Royal Family might have dealt with two ethnic strains which, if they had not been who they were, would certainly have caused them to be ostracized from those circles that wielded political power.

The accusation, which has unsettled the very foundation of a British society that has little else to talk about, came as a bolt from the blue for royal-family-watchers who were under the impression that the family was indeed doing something.
The revelations were considered especially unforeseeable, given the recent celebration of the queen’s Golden Jubilee, at which the royal family attended events, stood, waved and whispered in each other’s ear.
According to British pundits and gossip queens, the allegations may prompt constitutional reform that will require the royals to pay for their own parking tickets, stand in queue at film theatres, and in the worst-case scenario, obtain actual jobs.
