With all of the latest UK Jubilee issues so fresh, what else can they possibly issue NOW but something subdued, subtle, classy...

Though I'm sure folks are right and many postal companies are seeing $$ in potential "wallpaper stamp" sales.

This is one of my favorites from years gone by and one of the reasons I took to the hobby.

Here is a link to the Royal Mail website detailing UK Stamps issued by Royal Mail about the Queen

Now I'm going to have to get back to the Bi-clored QE2 sets I put on hold for my KGVI collection.

Hoping the prices don't skyrocket.

Always loved these. May she rest in peace.

How about the Queen as collector, as the royal collection was personal rather than state property?
She apparently was interested enough to continue acquisitions and staffing although, if Wikipedia is to be trusted, since Michael Sefi left in 2018, the household position of keeper or curator has been vacant. One hopes there are worker bees keeping things going sans Keeper.

One assumes the collection will be inherited by King Charles.
Any sign he has any interest in stamps?
What color will he choose for the binders to hold his additions to the collection? QE II had green, her father Geo VI used blue, and his father George V red.

Will Charles see fit to get a new Keeper and continue acquisitions? Or will the collection be a casualty of apathy or austerity (the slimmed down monarchy)?

Given the intensity of planning by royal family (weddings, funerals, jubilees) I suspect a definitive portrait and profile have already been chosen and approved. Not sure what they will do with new issues with QEII already in the design, however

Last year, plans for 'Operation London Bridge' were leaked, From the leaked plans, it was apparent there had been preparations for the Queen's (London Bridge) death in place for some time. It, also, was known that there were plans for an 'Operation Unicorn' if she would die in Scotland, as happened.

In the past, no special issues were planned when the sovereign died. Now, the 'Royal Marines' issue had been planned for 29 September. These stamps will already have been printed. My expectation is that it will go ahead as planned. On 19 October, Royal Mail planned its surprise issue. Likely, this also had been printed, but may be postponed for an issue commemorating the Queen. Although, this is highly improbable. Even if the design had been chosen, it is unlikely to have been printed.

It, very well, may be the case royal Mail has prepared a new issue for King Charles III and it won't take almost a year for a new permanent design to appear. There, also, may have been preparations for a new silhouette.

I doubt - but that is how I interpret the British protocol - the Queen will have approved these. I expect Royal Mail will require the King's approval for those. I cannot imagine they will have been printed before approval by the sovereign. Maybe, we will see the Christmas stamps with the CiiiR cipher, and early next year the silhouette. The permanent stamps may appear in December or January.

It will be interesting to see what Royal Mail will do.

Edit: if the surprise issue for 19 October will be postponed, it may be interesting to see whether stamps come to market with the Queen's silhouette and with a new cipher or King's silhouette.

One dreams that the surprise issue was printed in Tyrian plum and is sitting in stocks somewhere…

I just received the new 'First' from Royal Mail. Since it was delivered today, there is a good chance it was mailed Tuesday, but almost certainly after the Queen died.
There is no sign the planned issue for next week will be postponed and it will not have been possible to reprint these. The stamps still have the silhouette of the Queen.

Royal Mail will issue special stamps in memory of Queen Elizabeth II, on 10 November.
