The crest is a statant guardant lion wearing an imperial crown, himself on another representation of that crown. The dexter supporter is a likewise crowned English lion; the sinister supporter, a Scottish unicorn . According to legend a free unicorn was considered a dangerous beast, therefore the heraldic unicorn is chained.
