Default King Charles III is to appear on new Stamps from 4 April 2023




[The minimalist, unadorned picture,
with no crown on the stamp or
any other decoration,
was approved personally by the King.

"The feedback we got back was
that he wanted it to be simple,"
said Royal Mail director of
external affairs, David Gold.

"It's a very human image,
with no embellishment," he said.

The design was also intended
to provide continuity,
influenced by
the classic profile of Queen Elizabeth II
created by the artist Arnold Machin in 1967.

BBC News Text:
[The "King's war on slugs". It says gardening broadcaster
Alan Titchmarsh has revealed his friend the King
is "not amused by slugs eating his beloved plants".
The paper urges the monarch to
"cut the little fellas some slack".]
