The cypher of King Charles III has been revealed, with the royal monogram to be used by UK government departments and on passports and post boxes.
Palace unveils King Charles III monogram
British monarch King Charles’ sovereign’s monogram – which appears on government buildings and red mail pillar boxes – has been revealed.
The cypher, selected by the new monarch from a series of designs prepared by the College of Arms, consists of the initials ‘C’ and ‘R’ – representing Charles’s name and “Rex”, the Latin for king – alongside a depiction of the crown.
A version used in Scotland will feature the Scottish Crown.
It will eventually replace the “EIIR” stamp of Queen Elizabeth, who died earlier this month after 70 years on the throne.
