In the center of the shields is the symbol of the Order of the Garter, an order of chivalry founded by Edward III of England in 1348.
The Act of the Union of 1706 by Queen Anne added the arms of Scotland to those of England. The shields now read as England & Scotland, France, Ireland, and Hanover. Around the shields the many titles of the king are abbreviated to sometimes only one letter:
BRVN ET·L·DVX S·I·R·A·TH ET·EL
Duke of Brunswick and Lueneburg, Arch Treasurer and Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire
