The new monogram of Britain’s King Charles III, which will appear on government buildings and post boxes across the UK, has been revealed. He was chosen by the new monarch who succeeded Queen Elizabeth II. Charles had the opportunity to review a series of designs, finally settling on a cipher with the initials C (Charles) and R (Rex) inscribed, which is Latin for “king”.
The modified monogram also contains an image of the Tudor crown. The version used in Scotland will feature the Scottish crown.
The new monogram will replace the “EIIR” seal of Queen Elizabeth II, who died earlier this month after 70 years on the throne. It will also be used on military and police uniforms, official documents, etc. “The decision to replace ciphers will be made at the discretion of individual organizations and the process will be gradual,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. The court post office in the palace has already sent its first mails with the new cipher.
