Queen Elizabeth’s Death: Five Things That Will Change Now
Share this post

There will be a number of changes that we will happen in the United Kingdom following the death of Queen Elizabeth.
Since 1952, when she became the monarch, her picture has appeared on a variety of items, including money and stamps, and has become part of people’s daily lives.

However, following her death and the proclamation of a new King, the United Kingdom will see a number of changes in the following ways.

1. Money: All currency and coins currently in use in the UK feature the image of the Queen, but, in the wake of her demise, new currency and coins will be created with the face of the King.

There will eventually be a time when currency with the Queen’s face will no longer be in circulation, but for the time being, it will still be considered a legal tender.

2. Stamps: Like money, stamps also feature the image of the Queen, therefore new ones will also need to be made with the King’s face.

The ones that have a picture of the Queen will be phased out gradually.

3. Passport: A careful look at the UK passport, state: Her Britannic Majesty’s Secretary of State requests and requires in the name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.

As a result, the new passports will be modified to reflect the new King’s use of male pronouns. Passports, however, probably won’t need to be updated until after they have expired.

4. The National Anthem: the national anthem will no longer be God Save the Queen, as it will revert back to the original version for a male monarch – which is God Save the King.

5. Uniforms: The Queen’s cypher appears on many uniforms in the UK including those worn by police officers and the military.

These uniforms will likely be updated over time with the new King’s cypher.

The Queen’s Death
Buckingham Palace, Thursday evening, announced that Queen Elizabeth II passed away “peacefully” at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla will stay at Balmoral this Thursday evening and return to London on Friday, the statement added.

Doctors “recommended that she be placed under medical supervision,” according to a statement from Buckingham Palace released earlier on Thursday afternoon.

Several members of the royal family went there, including princes Charles and William and also Princess Anne and Prince Andrew as well as Harry.
