Re: William V of the United Kingdom
He may become the fifth king of his name to reign over the former kingdom of England and the second king of his name to reign over the former kingdom of Scotland but those kingdoms do not exist anymore. He will be William V of the United Kingdom, in Scotland and in England. The absence of a regnal number in a royal cypher does not mean that the monarch intends to be known as “the First”. He will not be “WIIR”.
The post boxes, police uniforms etc all through the late Queen's reign regardless of what reginal number you would wish to give her displayed ER. This was after the huge outcry and disruption there was here in Scotland in the 1950s. I can guarantee the disruption and outcry there will be if the cypher for William will be WVR will make the 1950s display appear to be a mere squabble.
We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation.
