Fit for a Prince

Of the 800 Royal Warrant Holders, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh has granted 35 of them. A Royal Warrant of Appointment can be made to businesses who have supplied highly quality goods or services for at least five years. Once an application is accepted, royal warrants are issued for five years. Those granted a warrant are responsible for displaying the relevant coat of arms of the Royal Family member.

Among them include Jaguar Land Rover
— the company that collaborated with the Duke over the past 18 years to customize the vehicle that transported the Duke of Edinburgh's coffin at his funeral.

If a Land Rover or custom suit by a Saville Row
tailor are beyond your reach, here are a few more affordable options:

Boots Opticians
— Commonly located on High Streets, Boots Opticians has 600 locations throughout the UK.
Hunters Boot 
— Established in 1856, Hunter is known for their popular classic boot originally introduced in 1956.

— Founded in 1860s by William Henry Penhaligon, a barber and perfumer to Queen Victoria.

With Prince Philip’s passing, his Royal Warrants are now void and the company has two years to discontinue the Royal Arms.  However, since many are also favored by other royals, there is a good chance the affiliations will endure.
