"With so much emphasis on The Queen's Diamond Jubilee this year, we felt that it was important to celebrate this milestone birthday."
Sally Diamond Ferbrache

Celebrating the 30th birthday of HRH The Duke of Cambridge on 21st June 2012 with a set of four stamps which reflect his military connections and achievements. As second in line to the British Throne, The Duke of Cambridge will, one day, become Head of the British Armed Forces. Recently serving as a fully operational RAF Search and Rescue Pilot, The Duke still holds his officer commissions in the Royal Navy and the Army. He also holds various honorary titles which have been bestowed upon him by HM The Queen.

Pictures on the stamps show the prince wearing British Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, and Irish Guards uniforms.

45p - Royal Air Force

From the Blues and Royals, Prince William embarked on an intensive training course at Royal Air Force College Cranwell and received his RAF wings in April 2008 from his father, HRH The Prince of Wales. Flight Lieutenant Wales undertook further helicopter flying and advanced training to graduate from the RAF Search and Rescue Conversion Course. At the time of writing, The Duke is based at RAF Valley in Anglesey, Wales as a pilot with the RAF's Search and Rescue Force (SARF). He was appointed Honorary Air Commander of Royal Air Force Coningsby in October 2008.
