This board reads as if the pub has been rebuilt in each of the monarchs' reigns. The other board is worded more carefully which makes us think it was the second to go up, but on our visit (June 2023) Charles III had still not been added to that board. Perhaps when the sign-writer returns to do that board they can also fix this one (while Charles III was crowned in 2023, he became king in 2022).

Wikipedia lists 27 interregnums world-wide, but the brief monarch-less period referenced on these boards was the one brought about by the Glorious Revolution.
