Royal Mail Issuing Royal Wedding Stamps

The stamps are to commemorate the royal wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles

The UK Royal Mail is to issue two stamps to commemorate the royal wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.

The new stamps will be issued on April 8, the same day the couple are to be married in Windsor.

The stamps feature the pair in an informal and relaxed mood, enjoying their time together at Birkhall, the Prince’s Scottish residence in January 2005 and at a public engagement at the Mey in the Scottish Highlands, taken in 2004.

Royal Mail’s Head of Special Stamps Julietta Edgar, said: “A Royal wedding is always a very special occasion and for decades Royal Mail has marked these important events with commemorative stamps.”

Despite the rumored arguments over the location of the wedding the Queen has approved the stamps.

The stamps will be available to buy on a miniature sheet containing two of each design. There will also be a First Day Cover and fully illustrated Presentation Pack.

The last set of Royal issue stamps was brought out to commemorate Prince William’s 21st birthday in July 2003.
