A Royal souvenir

The greatly admired couple are captured beautifully on the se-tenant set of two over-sized stamps (measuring 52mm x 37.5mm). Featuring a stunning metallic gold border, they portray William and Catherine in both a formal pose and an informal embrace. The denomination of both stamps is $2.40, which is the postage rate of a standard letter to the United Kingdom. That makes them perfect to place on the envelope when you send the happy couple your best wishes for their big day!

The wedding of the year

The Royal wedding will take place at the 1000-year-old Westminster Abbey – the coronation church since 1066 and the venue for 15 Royal weddings, including that of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh. Once married, the couple will return to Buckingham Palace where The Queen will host a reception, followed by a private dinner hosted by The Prince of Wales.
