Note the feathers in Frederick Prince of Wales’s coat of arms:
Frederick Louis, Prince of Wales 1707-1751 was the highly refined and cultured son of King George II who died from a sporting accident and never ruled. He had a great love of music and played the cello. Because he predeceased his father, King George II, he never ruled but was succeeded by his eldest child King George III. I first became acquainted with Frederick Prince of Wales’ throne when it was used as a backdrop for sophisticated recent photographs of Diana Princess of Wales. When I was wandering through Kensington Palace last month, the throne was used as a center for an exhibition. What amazing carving “crowns” the chair with the Prince of Wales’s feathers, the symbol for the Prince of Wales. Very interesting.
