So, what does the Princess by Right of Arms Carry?

The wise and clever Lady Susanna Grey asks:

--->But red is so *ugly* on that beautiful device... gold would
be much prettier... but... shouldn't the one who won Crown, not
the consort, bear the label?  only *one* is actually the heir...
This seems an important question, if one concedes that a woman will ever 
win Crown, which I would expect.  Currently, we have arms for the Prince 
and Princess, and if a woman won Crown, they would still use the same 
arms, as the Princess-by-right-of-arms would not yet have the Sovereign 
right to bear the Kingdom's arms, and the Prince-consort would still be 
the Prince.

If, however, we go to using the labels, then the 
Princess-by-right-of-arms would be the Sovereign's heir, and not the 
Prince-consort.  So the Princess-BROA would carry the kingdom's arms with 
the label, right?  So what does the Prince-consort carry?  The Queen's 
arms with the label?  Is the Queen's arms with a label the appropriate 
symbol for the Consort's Heir.  Is in fact the Princess of Atlantia 
considered an heir of the Consort/Queen, or is she just the consort of 
the Heir of the Sovereign, and shouldn't her device indicate this?

And you thought this was simple?
