Buckingham Palace has unveiled a new monogram for Queen Camilla, the BBC reported. Designed by Professor Ewan Clayton of the University of Sunderland, the new cipher combines the initials of the Queen Consort (“C” and “R” for Camill and Regina, Latin for Queen, respectively) and a crown. Ciphers are heraldic monograms that represent the reigning monarch of a particular country or her consort. You can see the encryption in the image below. The official Twitter handle for The Royal Family revealed the figure in a tweet. “The new cipher for the Queen Consort consists of her Majesty’s monogram (‘C’ for Camilla and ‘R’ for Regina, Latin for Queen) and a crown. The cipher will be used in official correspondence.” the subtitle said.
