There’s a new King in Britain (and other countries) which means there’s a new Royal
Logo Cypher or Monogram. Here’s how to get the Cypher for Microsoft Office documents or slides.
There’s a Royal Cypher below either the English/Tudor Crown or the Scottish Crown available from Wikipedia as a SVG (best for Microsoft 365, Office 2021 and Office 2019) or JPG/PNG (for Office 2016 and earlier versions).
Either way, the Royal Cypher (monogram or logo) is the same:
Why “C R”? It stands for “Charles Rex” which is how His Majesty now signs his name. His mother famously signed “Elizabeth R” all through her long reign. “Rex” is Latin for King, “Regina” for Queen.
Get the Cypher only by inserting the full image then cropping out the crown using Graphics Format | Size | Crop.
Variations of the Royal Cypher
Using the SVG version, there are many options in Microsoft Office for recoloring the logo using Graphics Format | Graphics Fill
Or change the logo border from Graphics Outline.
Royal Cypher in Monochome / B&W
Use Graphics Fill | Black to make a “Black and White” or monochrome version, similar to what will eventually appear on UK postboxes.
