Today I received my new, blue, British passport, restoring me to the status of a person with recognised “photo-ID”.
But the first words in the passport are: “Her Britannic Majesty’s”…
I applied for a new passport, after two years of being unable to provide a valid photo-ID and thus an “unperson”, some weeks after her Majesty’s death. I would have hoped that by now the Home Office might have updated their processes and that, after two weeks of non-citizenship, I might have been one of the first to receive a passport in the name of his Majesty, King Charles III.
Sadly, instead I am one of the last to be issued what is a de facto invalid document.

Mine is up for renewal fairly soon so I’ll be getting a ‘His’ version no doubt.
Good luck with that. It was my hope too.
