Other members of the Royal Family:
Following his ascension to the throne on 24 September 2022, King Charles has used the Royal Standard at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. Further flag developments are anticipated.
based on https://www.royal.uk/his-majesty-kings-cypher
The design of the Royal Cypher of HM King Charles III of the United Kingdom
and of the Commonwealth Realms has just been revealed.
Importantly, unlike Queen Elizabeth II which used St. Edward's Crown, the new Royal Cypher reverts to the Tudor Crown, last used by King George VI. (Except in Scotland which continues to use the Crown of Scotland.)
The most immediate flag change would be that of Military Authorities Afloat which displays the Royal Cypher. It is yet to be seen how the Royal Cypher on the personal flags of the King in the Commonwealth Realms would look like, and if other flags depicting the Crown would be changed as well.
