Britain’s Royal Mail has unveiled a “definitive” stamp of King Charles III featuring an adapted version of the portrait of him also appearing on new coinage.
Britain unveils new stamp with image of King Charles
New ‘everyday’ stamps featuring the image of King Charles have been revealed for the first time, the latest item in Britain to get a makeover following the death of Queen Elizabeth.
From coins and banknotes and to the official royal cypher used by the government, Britain has been slowly introducing replacements featuring the new monarch since his mother’s death in September.
In keeping with a tradition dating back to the first Penny Black in 1840, the new “definitive” stamp uses an adapted version of a portrait of Charles which is also appearing on new coinage.
“As with all stamps, the monarch approved them and so we hope that he’s happy with this design,” Royal Mail director of external affairs and policy David Gold said.
