By Royal Appointment In the late 18th century, Royal tradesmen in Britain began displaying the Royal Arms on their premises and stationery.
Queen Victoria ensured Royal Warrants gained the prestige they enjoy today. During her 64 year reign, the Queen and her family granted more than 2000 Royal Warrants, eight times as many as the Queen’s uncle, George IV. In 1893, Thomas Brigg and Sons received its first Royal Appointment from Her Majesty Queen Victoria, and became the first umbrella maker ever to be honoured with an appointment. Further Royal Appointments were also bestowed by Her Majesty Queen Victoria and by His Majesty Edward VI. Royal Warrant Holders today – there are around 850 Royal Warrant Holders. Royal Warrants continue to be a prestigious mark of recognition to those who are regular suppliers of goods and services to certain members of the Royal Family.
The company is appointed as “Suppliers of Umbrellas” to HRH The Prince of Wales.
