Tim, The escallop on the label is derived from the Spencer Coat of Arms: Quarterly Argent and Gules in the 2nd and 3rd Quarters a Fret Or over all on a Bend Sable three Escallops of the First. This has been borne by the two princes’ ancestors, the Earls Spencer, for many centuries and was used by the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The label of course for an elder son, Prince Charles.
