HRH The Prince of Wales’ 65th Birthday is marked with a Souvenir Miniature Sheet and stamp in which he is depicted in his impressive ceremonial Welsh Guards uniform. The image is the official portrait of the Prince taken by Hugo Burnand to commemorate his 60th birthday. The stamp features a closer crop of the image and both are subtly enhanced with the number 65 in a clear gloss varnish across the background.
“We are delighted to celebrate the 65th Birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales by issuing this commemorative Souvenir Miniature Sheet”, commented Chris Elligott, Philatelic Product Manager at Jersey Post. “Jersey stamps have become synonymous with the quality of their Royal themed issues and this will be a striking addition to any enthusiast’s collection”.
