Royal Warrant Awarded

royal coat of armsOn January 1, 2008, I was granted a Royal Warrant. My warrant was granted by HM The Queen in connection with the e-Gallery touchscreen kiosk system, used in the Queen's Galleries, and with the Royal Collection website that I designed, developed and maintained for around ten years.

Royal Warrants are granted to people or companies who have regularly supplied goods or services for a minimum of five consecutive years to The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh or The Prince of Wales. The practice of granting Royal Warrants (originally Royal Charters) goes back to 1155, in the reign of Henry II. My warrant has now lapsed as it only lasts while services continue to be provided, but it was very interesting to play a part in this very long tradition.
