Various changes from money to stamps will eventually be made following the transition from the second Elizabethan age to the third Caroline age.
Her Majesty’s Theatre on London’s Haymarket, built in 1897, will be renamed His Majesty’s Theatre , LWTheatres / Andrew Lloyd Webber (who have owned the building since 2000) have confirmed.
One change, however, was automatic. One consequence of Queen Elizabeth II’s death was that Queen’s Counsel (QC) became King’s Counsel (KC).
The Bar Council pointed out: “We have been advised by the Crown Office that the title Queen’s Counsel (QC) changes to King’s Counsel (KC) with immediate effect. The change is automatic so there are no new Letters Patent.”
The title King’s Counsel is likely to endure for at least 100 years given the prospective male lineage of the Royal Family.
The title of KC is awarded to those who have demonstrated particular skill and expertise in advocacy. KCs are appointed by the U.K. monarch, on the advice of the Lord Chancellor who works with advisors on an independent selection panel. The first Queen’s Counsel (QC) was appointed in 1597 by Queen Elizabeth I.
