New British passports now bear the name ‘His Majesty’ for first time since 1952

27 Jul 2023, 10 mins ago

On 8 September 2022, when the late Queen Elizabeth II passed away, Her Majesty’s Passport Office became His Majesty’s Passport Office. Since then, passports have continued to be issued  in the name ‘Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’. However, as of 18 July 2023, every new British passport issued will bear the name ‘His Majesty King Charles III’.

It is the first time in 70 years that passports will be issued in a male monarch’s name since 1952.
