The first goblet was presented to the Queen by the Garter King of Arms.

The 3 Lion's rampant holding shields support the bowl of the goblet. In true heraldic fashion, each is sculptured to look 'more like a lion than did ever any lion of nature' but each is distinguished from the other two. Her Majesty the Queen's, which holds the Royal Arms, is crowned. Richard III's is unadorned in the early royal fashion and holds the Royal Arms of his time, those of France and England combined. The shield of the College of Arms is held by one of its lion supporters, engorged with a coronet.
