King regards vs Kind regards

    Couple of my letters I occasionally get "king regards" at the end. I've never heard of it and always just assumed it was an error, however it's popped up a couple times now so I am starting to wonder if maybe it is actually a term I don't know about.

    Can anyone tell me if "king regards" is actually a proper term, or is it merely a misspelling of "kind regards"?

    Thank you for your time,
    OhMan.

    The correct message is kind regards or best regards.

    King regards is a misspelling error, unless the message is comming from a king, in which case it should read: king's regards. :D

    I'm pretty sure it's just a typo. Probably caused by the fact that we type -ing so many times a day that our fingers just keep going - I do that sort of thing all the time.

    I have noticed that many people rely too much on "Spell Check" and accept the suggestions made by their computers without double-checking context!

    Speaking of typos, it's "coming." (If poster's PMs were enabled, I would have done this privately :) :))

    Ok, so it is definitely a typo.

    Has it been used before in any sort of historical context? Like maybe in Victorian times or perhaps something religion related?

    I don't think so.

    This was definitely a typo.
