On the 15th of May 2013 the Welsh Livery Guild became The Worshipful Livery Company of Wales when granted a Royal Charter. Y Cwmni Anrhydeddus Lifrai Cymru yw'r unig un y tu allan i'r Cwmnïau Lifrai yn Llundain sydd wedi cael y teitl ‘Anrhydeddus’. Fodd bynnag, yn wahanol i Gwmnïau Lifrai eraill, mae'r WLCoW yn ymwneud â'r holl sbectrwm ymdrech ddynol yn hytrach na bod yn gysylltiedig ag un grefft, masnach neu broffesiwn arbennig. Yn unol â'i amcanion, mae'r cwmni lifrai yn darparu cwmniaeth i'w haelodau, yn cefnogi addysg ac yn rhoi gwobrau i bobl Cymru i ddatblygu eu sgiliau a'u doniau.
