As we mourn Queen Elizabeth II, we share our support for King Charles III as he becomes the oldest person to assume the British throne. Now we have a new monarch, things that have been the same way for 70 years will begin to change – even down to the portrait we’re used to seeing on our money.
A 14-year-old girl wrote her mum an adorable note while she was busy on a conference call, asking whether she’d be able to continue using money that bares the Queen’s face. She was worried she wouldn’t be able to buy milk at the shop because she doesn’t yet have any coins or notes with King Charles’s portrait on them.
Providing her mum with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ option, the girl’s note read: “I’m going to the shops to buy my milk because I don’t like the oat one and other stuff – OK.
“But will they still accept the money with the Queen’s face on? Yes. No. Just point to one.”
While most users couldn’t help but laugh at the teenager’s question, others commented on how they love how children’s minds work.
One user said: “That is so cute. I love it when teens do stuff like this, they’re still kids even though they are so grown up.”
Another user added: “Should have told her it’s not valid, but she should give all the old notes and coins to you for proper disposal and recycling.”
A third user said: “Aw, kids. She’s got lovely handwriting I must say. And she’s considerate to not disturb you.”
One user added: “Write the date on it and keep this note for when she becomes Governor of the Bank of England.”
And just in case anybody is concerned, yes – shops are still accepting notes and coins with the Queen’s face on them.
