King Charles pictured with red box for the first time
There’s a new cypher to mark the King’s ascension to the throne, and football fans keep pointing out the same thing.
The new crest has been revealed ahead of the official period of royal mourning ending, with Charles’ monogram set to appear on official documents and government buildings in the future.
The design incorporates 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 letters. A Scottish version features the Scottish Crown.
It won’t be straight away that we see the cypher everywhere, with the cyphers of previous monarchs still set to be used in places and the process of replacing them set to be a gradual one.
