Regional differences in postbox design

There have also been regional differences in street furniture design. In Scotland, Royal Mail street furniture, vehicles and buildings bear the Scottish Crown rather than the cypher of Queen Elizabeth – EIIR. This is due to the fact that Her Majesty is not the second Queen Elizabeth of Scotland, but the first. Queen Elizabeth I was not the Queen of Scotland, with James I uniting England, Scotland and Wales to form one kingdom.
