King Charles’ new monogram has been unveiled

The British king’s new cipher was unveiled ahead of the official end of royal mourning.

ing Charles’ monogram will appear on government buildings, state documents and some mailboxes in the months and years to come.

The cipher mark is the king’s initial C intertwined with the letter R for Rex – Latin for king – with III within the R denoting Charles III, with the crown above the letter.

The new monarch traveled to Scotland shortly after the Queen’s funeral last Monday, with the period of royal mourning continuing for seven days after the late Queen’s funeral.

The monogram is Charles’s personal property and was chosen by the monarch from a series of designs prepared by the College of Arms.

A Scottish version features the Scottish Crown and was approved by Lord Lyon King of Arms.

It is used by government agencies and the Royal Household to frank mail, and the decision to replace ciphers is at the discretion of each organization.

The process will be gradual and in some cases the ciphers of previous monarchs can still be seen on public buildings and street furniture, especially mailboxes.

The College of Arms, which designed the ciphers, was founded in 1484 and is responsible for the creation and maintenance of official coat of arms and genealogical registers.

The Heralds who make up the College are members of the royal household and act under the authority of the crown.

A spokesman for the Cabinet Office said of replacing the late Queen’s cipher with Charles’s monogram: “Where changes can easily be made, such as B. digital branding, they can be made immediately.

“Physical items such as signs or stationery will be gradually replaced over time as needed.” King Charles’ new monogram has been unveiled
