The new cipher of King Charles III. will be revealed at the end of the royal mourning

The new cipher of King Charles III. was unveiled at the end of the royal mourning period

The cipher is the King’s personal property and was chosen by the King from a series of drafts prepared by the College of Arms (Pictures: PA).

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

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

It shows His Majesty’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 Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral last Monday, with the period of royal mourning lasting seven days following the funeral of his late mother.

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 like signs or stationery will be replaced as needed over time.”
