Prince’s birth­day marked with stamps

South Wales Echo - - News -

Charles, the Duke of Cam­bridge and the Duke of Sus­sex were pho­tographed dur­ing the July cel­e­bra­tions at Buck­ing­ham Palace that marked the RAF’s 100th an­niver­sary.

Wil­liam served for a num­ber of years as an RAF Search and Res­cue pi­lot, Harry is Hon­orary Air Com­man­dant of RAF Hon­ing­ton while their fa­ther is Mar­shal of the Royal Air Force.

The im­age is one of six that show the heir to the throne at work and play in cel­e­bra­tion of his birth­day on Novem­ber 14.

Polo princes is the theme of an­other stamp, with Wil­liam and Harry shar­ing a joke with their fa­ther dur­ing an event at Cirences­ter Park Polo Club in 2004, when they took part in the Gurkha Wel­fare Chal­lenge Tro­phy. Charles’ Scot­tish re­treat, the Cas­tle of Mey, is the back­drop for a por­trait of the prince on an­other.

Three of the stamps are first class with the re­main­ing trio priced £1.55, and all are con­tained within a spe­cial minia­ture sheet.

They are avail­able to pre­order from the Royal Mail web­site and go on gen­eral sale from Thurs­day.
