Official monogram of King Charles III releases after end of Royal family mourning


The Royal family released the new King of Britain, King Charles III’s official monogram, after the end of the mourning period of Queen Elizabeth II.

Charles’s cypher will appear on government buildings, state documents and on some postboxes in the coming months and years.


The cypher features the King’s initial “C” intertwined with the letter “R” for Rex – Latin for the King – with “III” denoting Charles III, with the crown above the letters.

King Charles III visited Scotland soon after the funeral of the longest serving Monarch of Britain last Monday, with the period of royal mourning lasting for seven days after the late Queen’s burial.

After a series of designs prepared by the College of Arms, Monarch finalized the official monogram. The monogram is Charles’s personal property.

It will be used by government branches and the royal household for franking mail. The decision to replace cyphers will be at the discretion of individual organizations.

The process will be gradual in some instances; the cyphers of previous monarchs can still be seen on public buildings and street furniture, especially post boxes.

The College of Arms, which designed the cyphers, was founded in 1484 and is responsible for creating and supporting official registers of coats of arms and pedigrees.


The heralds who make up the college are royal household members and act under crown authority.On the same day, Royal Mail announced four stamps that feature portraits of the Queen were to be released in her memory.
