That only requires one change. The 'king's' arms are registered to the 
kingdom and represent the kingdom and automatically belong to the 
sovereign (and apparently the consorts as well, I find from all this 
discussion). The queen's arms are registered to the queen.

I am in the habit of telling people that when Rowan was queen, she bore 
BOTH sets of arms and Hector wasn't entitled to either. He sat in the 
consort's throne by her sufferance and not by right. I will have to 
modify that story, it seems.

I hate being wrong, but I'm good at it -- I do it a lot.

P.S.  I remember the discussion that ensued when Rowan won Crown as to 
arms would be used as the kingdom arms, which chair Hector would sit 
in, etc. 
As set out in Ansteorran Gazette #13, January 1991, by Tadhg, then-SPH, 
Rowan and Hector could use the kingdom arms ("being arms of dominion"), 
only Rowan could use the Queen's arms ("since they are so designated").
(Hey, Robert, I think it would be great to have a bunch of this stuff 
on the
& Hector page, don't you?)

We could change the registration designations on the arms from King and 
Queen to
Sovereign and Consort.
