Penhaligon’s are the holders of two royal warrants. These are recognition of
personal service of a high order, and today there are over 850 royal warrant
holders entitled to use the title and royal arms.
By the end of Queen Victoria's reign, William Penhaligon had been appointed Barber and Perfumer to the Royal Court. In 1903 the business was granted a Royal Warrant by Queen Alexandra. Now, over 140 years later, we are proud to hold two long-standing Royal Warrants from HRH The Prince of Wales (granted in 1988) and HRH the Duke of Edinburgh (granted in 1956).
Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to individuals or companies who have supplied goods or services for at least five years to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales. Warrants have always been regarded as demonstrating excellence and quality, and are highly prized.
Today there are over 850 Royal Warrant holders entitled to use the title and Royal Arms. Penhaligon’s are very proud to be the holders of such prestigious Royal Warrants and will always strive to fulfill the strict criteria implicit with the Royal Warrant Association.
