I used to be an unperson

For the last two years I have been unable to provide any valid official photographic identity. Recently I have re-applied for a new UK passport, my old one having expired in 2020.

Today I received my new UK passport which is already out of date. Despite my application having been submitted after the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, my passport is issued in the name of Her Secretary of State. They used to be issued in the name of the sovereign when I first applied for one.

So, should I apply for a new, valid, passport authorised by His Majesty’s Secretary of State, or will one of the final ones from the former regime be more valuable? Personally, I would prefer one in the name of the new King, but since the monarch is now only mentioned en passant I don’t suppose it matters.
