Kings of Arms: New Appointments

Further to my post on 24th March Kings of Arms: Changes ahead? two appointments have now been announced in The London Gazette.

THE QUEEN has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 1 April 2021, to grant unto Timothy Hugh Stewart Duke, Esquire, the Office of Clarenceux King of Arms, vacant by the retirement of Patric Laurence Dickinson, Esquire, L.V.O.

THE QUEEN has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 6 April 2021, to grant unto Robert John Baptist Noel, Esquire, the Office of Norroy and Ulster King of Arms, vacant by the promotion of Timothy Hugh Stewart Duke, Esquire.

The next anticipated vacancy will be when Thomas Woodcock, Garter, retires following his 70th birthday in May this year. The next most senior Herald is David White, Somerset.
