Bailiwick of Jersey - HRH Duke of Cambridge, 30th Birthday (2012) 68p
"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.

68p - British Army

Prince William joined the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst as an Officer Cader in January 2006 and was commissioned as an Army Officer in the presence of HM The Queen just 11 months later in December 2006. He then joined the Household Cavalry 'Blues and Royals', following the path of his younger brother, Prince Harry, and rose to the rank of Lieutenant. The stamp features Prince William at Prince Harry's Passing Out Parade at Sandhurst in April 2006.
