On Thursday, King Charles made two statements on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook from the British royal family's official accounts, sending the messages with a redesigned graphic. Charles, 74, took over the @RoyalFamily social media pages upon his accession following Queen Elizabeth's death in September 2022. As seen in news feeds, the new graphics feature navy text on a white background watermarked with the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom. The statements were excerpts of messages he sent to the president of Pakistan following the deadly bombing in Peshawar, Pakistan, and words of support for those affected by the devastating flooding in New Zealand. Until now, King Charles had been making statements with the same navy graphic that Queen Elizabeth used. The old design featured large white text with a small royal coat of arms in the lower left corner. The Royal Family/Twitter Queen Elizabeth Is Being Replaced on Australia's $5 Bill — But Not With King Charles Following his mother as monarch, Charles has used his royal signature, "Charles R." The "R" stands for "Rex," which means "King" in Latin. During her record-breaking reign, Queen Elizabeth would sign official communications as "Elizabeth R" — the "R" meaning "Regina," or "Queen." The new graphic isn't the only way King Charles is refreshing the royal family's social media pages. In the fall, the sovereign's office started a series called "The Royal Week," sharing photos and short summaries on the latest engagements of the King, Queen Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton and the rest of the working royals. Last week, Charles' office started the clock for the countdown to his coronation in May. "100 days to go until the Coronation!" the palace tweeted, sharing a recap of "what to expect" over the three-day weekend.
