Queen Consort Camilla's new cypher

Camilla's update comes after King Charles unveiled his royal cypher back in September. The royal cypher features the King's initial 'C' intertwined with the letter 'R' for Rex – Latin for King. The letter 'R' moreover features the roman numerals 'III' to denote King Charles III's full title.

Queen Camilla will be crowned alongside King Charles on 6 May. The historic event will take place in Westminster Abbey and will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Announcing the news, Buckingham Palace said: "The ceremony will see His Majesty King Charles III crowned alongside the Queen Consort.

"The coronation will reflect the monarch's role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry."

The royal couple will be crowned in May

King Charles III's coronation will likely be a scaled-back affair with significantly reduced guest numbers. It's thought that attendees will be decreased from 8,000 to around 2,000, with peers expected to wear suits and dresses instead of ceremonial robes.

Key members of the royal family will reunite for the special occasion, with the likes of Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, The Prince and Princess of Wales, and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex all expected to attend the religious ceremony.
