Royal Warrants

 

In peerage matters Royal Warrants are documents issued by the Crown to allow certain things to happen outside the normal rules or conventions.  As will be seen from the examples below they are often used to allow people styles and precedence which they would only have been entitled to had other events, such as the death of a close relative, not happened.
