Designed by Mytton Williams, known for his work with Time Out, and written by royal correspondent Robert Hardman, this pack contains our limited-edition anniversary six-stamp set with images from their engagement period, wedding and honeymoon, stories from the 1947 wedding and never-before-seen archive photographs. The pack's book features details from Princess Elizabeth's wedding dress.
Royal Mail spokesperson, Philip Parker, said, `A platinum wedding anniversary is rare, and for the Royal Family, it's unique. We're delighted to issue these six stamps to mark Her Majesty's and the Duke of Edinburgh's 70 years of marriage.'
We've also issued a set of handstamps with this special stamp issue.
