This is now changing with Prince Charles as King

There are 4.5 billion pounds of banknotes in circulation with the Queen’s face, with a combined value of 80 billion pounds. It should take at least two years to replace it with banknotes with the new king’s head, the Guardian reports. When the last synthetic £50 banknote was issued, it took 16 months for the Bank of England to redeem and exchange it.

When the Queen ascended the throne in 1952, the king was not mentioned on the banknotes. That changed in 1960 when Elizabeth II’s face began to appear on the one-pound banknote in an image created by banknote designer Robert Austin, which some criticized for being too harsh.

A portrait of the new king was agreed upon with Buckingham Palace. The Queen’s head also appears on $20 bills in Canada, on New Zealand coins, and on all coins and banknotes issued by the Central Bank of the East.

National anthem

The new king may make a statement as soon as tomorrow and, according to early eighteenth century tradition, swear an oath to preserve the Church of Scotland. Then, for the first time since 1952, the national anthem will sound “God save the Queen” (German: Gott schütze den König) in place of the previous “God save the Queen”.


Military regiments fly in the colors of the queen, many of which are encrusted with gold-embroidered EIIR; The insignia of the fire brigade includes her initials, and countries in which the Queen remains head of state, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand, have flags that experts call “electronic flags” – which are the Queen’s personal flags to use when she visits. British Guardian reports.

It is likely that the standard royal pennant – the square pennant that flies wherever the king resides – will also change. The version used by the Queen includes a quarter representing Scotland (a rampant lion), one for Ireland (a lyre) and two representing England (three roaming lions), but none for Wales. It was used long before Wales acquired its national flag, which was recognized in 1959. The next king may contain a Welsh element.
