St George’s Hall adds the Royal Cypher on the famous Willis Organ

The Royal Cypher of King Charles III has been placed on the famous Willis Organ in the Great Hall at St George’s Hall.

The cypher is the Sovereign’s official monogram, consisting of the initials of the monarch’s name, Charles, and title, Rex, Latin for King, alongside a representation of the crown.

The trustees of St George’s Hall commissioned the artwork to commemorate the accession to the throne of King Charles III.

The Grade I-listed structure is one of His Majesty’s favourite buildings, and he officially reopened it in 2007 following restoration work.

Claire Dove, chair of the Trustees of St George’s Hall, said: 

“We are delighted as a trust to be able to have the opportunity to commemorate King Charles III’s Coronation, particularly as His Majesty has a long-standing role in supporting and championing St George’s Hall, recognised as one of the finest buildings in Europe. 

“It has enabled the trustees to preserve, protect and enhance the history of the iconic hall.”

The cypher will be on display for the first time at a special organ recital of ‘Eurovision Classics’ on Wednesday, 10 May.
