Royal Standard differenced by three point label charged with one blue anchor.
Second son of the Queen Elizabeth II, arms approved 1960.
The same label and charge as that of his grandfather who became King George VI.

According to Boutell's Heraldry, the labels
for both Prince Andrew and Princess Anne were assigned by Royal Warrant 7 July

"British Flags & Emblems"
by Graham Bartram states that the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl
of Wessex have their own standards for use in Scotland, using the Scottish
version of the royal arms with labels of cadency.

Wikipedia reports standards for Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie:
Beatrice - "The first, middle, and last points each bear a bee, while the
second and fourth points are blank." -
Eugenie - "The first, middle, and last points each bear a thistle head, while the second and fourth points are blank." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Royal_Standard_of_Princess_Eugenie_of_York.svg

These two standards may be a mistake. Although Beatrice and Eugenie appear to
have been granted arms, I can find no reference to their standards other than in
Wikipedia . They are not on Graham Bartram’s World
Flag Database. The contributor to Wikipedia may have assumed that all
variations of the royal arms have a similar variation of the royal standard.
This does not necessarily follow.
