ROYAL MAIL MARKS HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN’S PLATINUM JUBILEE WITH EIGHT NEW SPECIAL STAMPS
Royal Mail is celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with eight new stamps featuring a selection of images showing The Queen’s dedication to service during her 70-year reign.
Each stamp shows a different facet of her work, from Trooping the Colour to visits across the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and the wider world.
This is the first time a Platinum Jubilee has been celebrated in the UK and will be both of national and international significance.
Accession Day falls on 6 February. Celebrations are planned to take place throughout 2022, including a special extended Bank Holiday weekend, from 2 to 6 June. The weekend will feature celebratory activities throughout the UK and across the Commonwealth.
Simon Thompson, CEO, Royal Mail, said: “These stamps are a celebration of the second Elizabethan Age and a tribute to a remarkable lifetime of duty and public service. We are honoured to be releasing them to mark the occasion of the first Platinum Jubilee in the UK’s history, a momentous occasion.”
