In that documentary the way he got after his wife who was conveniently glossing over some truth about her upbringing really raised his value in my eyes.

The memes based on that clip are amazing!

Haha I just googled I never saw them before. What a hoot.

It was so funny! They seem to have a cute rapport and respect for one another.

My god, Beckham is DESPERATE for a knighthood. The documentary didn’t mention his rants at not getting one, or his participation in tax avoidance schemes, which is apparently one of the main reasons he doesn’t have one. At least so far, but he’s definitely going to keep trying.

King Charles can now be seen on British banknotes

The first banknotes with the portrait of King Charles have been put into circulation in the United Kingdom. An image of the 75-year-old Charles was introduced on coins shortly after the start of his reign, but banknotes still only showed his mother Queen Elizabeth. So that is now changing, albeit gradually.

The Bank of England has four types of notes: 5, 10, 20 and 50 pounds. On all four, Elizabeth now makes way for Charles. Other than that, nothing changes to the notes.

Elizabeth will still be seen a lot at British box offices for the time being. There are 4.6 billion Bank of England notes in circulation. The royal family also urges not to replace all banknotes immediately and to keep the costs incurred by the new design limited.

Britons who want to quickly get a set of banknotes at home can exchange old banknotes at the Bank of England. A special form (.pdf) has been placed online for this purpose. From next Wednesday they will also be issued at the counter of the central bank in London.

King Charles will appear on British banknotes from today

By Tom van Gurp

Update: 1 min ago

From today you can find banknotes with the image of King Charles in the United Kingdom. The British monarch will now also adorn the 5, 10, 20 and 50 pound notes, after coins with his portrait have previously appeared.
It is only the second monarch to appear on British banknotes. The first was Queen Elizabeth II, Charles' mother. She died two years ago, after which her son ascended the throne.

The other side of the British banknotes features images of other prominent figures from British history, such as former Prime Minister Winston Churchill and writer Jane Austen.

Anyone traveling to the United Kingdom soon will probably not often encounter the notes with Charles on them. They are issued little by little, for example when old notes are damaged, reports the British broadcaster BBC News.

I live in the UK and the only coins I've seen Charles on are 50ps (and I work in a pub so handle a lot of cash). Looking forward to seeing the new ones! I'm not sure if this is a quirk unique to Britain, but there's always a strange sense of excitement when people get a new or different coin. My dad collects them, as do many people I know.

I know in the UK there are all sorts of nicknames for various coins and items of currency. So when I saw this image of the new five pound note with Charles' image, all I could think of is a  store here in the US -- Trader Joe's -- that used to sell inexpensive wine as ``Two Buck Chuck'' in honor of their founder whose first name was Charles. So I wonder what names will befall his notes. Hey buddy, can you spare a Charlie?

It was under the Charles Shaw label.  Joe Coulombe started Trader Joe's.

I always found the old British way of naming currency so interesting.  Crowns, sovereigns, quid (always singular), bob (also singular).

THanks. I couldn't quite remember the details except for the `two buck Chuck'' part.  So do you think the currency will be known as Chucks or Charlies? Or is that too irreverent for the UK?

Crowns, sovereigns, guineas etc used to refer to specific monetary coins before decimal currency. Florins and farthings are other examples. Bob and quid are colloquial, as is "smackers"' "pony" and "monkey'" (i think pony is £20 and monkey is £100 though I may be wrong- either way they refer to a specific amount). I don't think I've heard of a currency nickname for HLM, but given the prevalent use of cocaine in the UK, often used via a rolled up bank note, I wouldn't be surprised if Charlie was used as a nickname

Numbers 9 and 12 Company were extremely privileged to receive their new Colours from His Majesty The King, at an intimate ceremony in Windsor Castle today.
The new King’s Colour will be ‘trooped’ this Saturday for the King’s Birthday Parade.
The Colours form part of the Irish Guards’ legacy, representing those that have fought and died for the Regiment.
 To this day, they accompany soldiers on operations and, more visibly, on ceremonial duties.
