Yes, Lara Croft has always had an aristocratic background. That is one of the few things about her backstory that hasn't changed over the years. Her family isn't based on any real noble families, though, so unless they invent more backstory for her family and put it in the games, I don't think you'll ever learn more about it.

Not royalty but (at least back in the day) it would often be a sign of nobility. It certainly wasn't common for every random working class family in Europe to have a coat of arms.
