 The bowl of the goblet is held by heraldic beasts, each holding its appropriate coat of arms, are those associated with the three principals in the event.

For the Prince, the Dragon, his insignia as Prince of Wales: the Celtic badge of chieftanship, first used in English royal heraldry by the Tudors.

For the Lady Diana, the Griffin, crest of the Spencers: in legend a guardian of treasure with the appearance of the eagle and lion combined.

For St Paulís, the Phoenix, its emblem chosen by Wren. The cathedral he built replaced old St Paulís, destroyed in the Great Fire of London, as fire had destroyed its two predecessors. Each time, like a phoenix from its ashes, it rose again.
