    King Charles III tartan

    My cynical nature is wondering how long it will take before various "King Charles III" tartans and "Coronation 2022" tartans and "Queen Elizabeth II Memorial" tartans hit the market.

    Or have they already made their inevitable appearance?

    I am currently staying very close to the Royal Mile. I will keep a lookout. I wouldn't be shocked.

    I think it inevitable. That said, I would add two caveats. Firstly, I would hope/expect that the SRT would not accept a King Charles III tartan without authority from the palace. Secondly, while there is precedent for the trade to name tartans after previous monarchs, and the Princess Diana Memorial tartan, there has never been a Coronation tartan. I wonder about the commercial viability of such a tartan.
