Why there is French on a British passport
|April 17, 2017||Posted by TravelKinds.Com under General||
On the front of the British passport,on the Royal Coat of Arms, there are French words such as “Dieu et mon droit” and “Honi soit qui mal y pense.”
The origin of some of these words dates back to the 12th Century.
It’s believed King Richard I used “Dieu et mon droit” as his battle cry in 1198 when defeating Philip II of France at the Battle of Gisors.
