"A shield issued to the Hyrulean royal family's immediate guard detail. It boasts a high defense, but these days it's more a collector's item due to its ornamentation."
— In-game description

The Royal Shield is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a shield with a base defense rating of 55 though this may be increased if it has a Shield Guard Up bonus.

It was originally issued to the Hyrulean Royal Family's immediate guard detail. Despite its high defense and durability, its ornamentation and rarity caused it to be viewed as more of a collector's item in Hyrule one hundred years after the Great Calamity. Hylian shield-surfer Selmie has one hanging above her fireplace inside her cabin at her spot.

It boosts high defense and durability greater than the Knight's Shield, but it is not as strong as the mighty Hylian Shield. Like the Knight's Shield, its metal construction prevents it from burning when exposed to fire or the extreme temperatures of Eldin Canyon and Eldin Mountains regions. However it is dangerous to wield it during a thunderstorm as it attracts lightning unless Link is wearing unshockable Armor. Its design was apparently used as the basis for the Sheikah-made Royal Guard's Shield.
