๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Royal Mail -

2023 - Horizon postal labels, redesigned to feature King Charles III. An item was first described, to the best of my knowledge, by Ian Billings in the 13 July 2023 edition of his Norvic Stamps Blog. The particular item he showed in that edition depicted a label dated 11 July 2023. I have delayed mentioning these items in this Blog until I received my first example of a King Charles III Horizon label which arrived on 7 May 2024 (the label itself being dated 1 May 2024 - 6 days to deliver a 2nd Class Large ‘signed for’ packet which is a good example of the failing service Royal Mail is now giving to its customers). 

  For anyone interested in the evolving story of the post here in the United Kingdom they should, I feel, include examples of these labels in their collection preferably, I would have thought on cover especially when the label is accompanied by a ‘signed for’ label.

  This version is different from that featured in the Norvic Stamps Blog which has a data matrix printed on it -
