Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was never expected to ascend to the Throne; however, she became the UK’s oldest and longest serving monarch.
During those glorious 70 years as Queen, she witnessed the world evolve beyond imagination: technologically, economically, and culturally; always a symbolic figurehead throughout.
Today we offer you the chance to pre-order your very own piece of history, a collectable heaped in nostalgia.
‘In Memoriam of Her Majesty’ – our first day cover is a handmade, limited edition, featuring a montage of her life with four new stamps and stand-out decorative gold foil design.
Postmarked at Windsor Castle where she was laid to rest alongside her Parents, Sister, and her beloved Husband HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. These stamps are the first to have the Royal approval of King Charles III, a historic moment in stamp and collectables.
