Thank you so much Boffer for the work you have put into your posting on the complicated Connaught coronets.
I took the link to the Letters Patent - or Warrant? I'm not clear about the difference, if any.
I just had to extract the current part and split it up to cope with the details. So I am sharing that here.
The following is copied from the link, with gaps and underlined letters inserted to identify the segments as best I could.
We now having taken this matter into our consideration do declare our royal will and pleasure and
assigned to the immediate daughters and sisters of ourselves and of our successors
a coronet composed of four crosses pattee and four fleurs-de-lis and
to all the sons and daughters of the son and heir apparent of us and of our successors
a coronet composed of two crosses pattee four fleurs-de-lis and two strawberry leaves; and
to the sons not bearing the rank of duke and
to the daughters of the sons other than the heir apparent and of the brothers of us and of our predecessors and of our successors
a coronet composed of four crosses pattee and four strawberry leaves; and
to the sons and daughters of the daughters of us and of our predecessors and of our successors
a coronet composed of four fleurs-de-lis and four strawberry leaves to be borne and used by them being subjects of these our realms, and
we do further ordain and declare that the respective wives and widows of the persons entitled under this our royal warrant or under the aforesaid warrant of king Charles the Second may bear and use the coronet of their respective husbands.

we do command you to cause this our warrant to be recorded in our College of Arms whereof you are not to fail ; in which this shall be your warrant. Given at our Court of St Jamesís the 19th day of November 1917 in the 8th year of our reign.
