Royal request for special first day cover
May 24, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Personal copies of the special commemorative first day cover for HRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have been requested by Clarence House, following the couple's royal visit to the Island last month.
To mark the prestigious visit which was part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, Isle of Man Post Office produced a special commemorative cover. It featured the Queen's Diamond Jubilee stamps and captured the essence of the day with a selection of photographs featured on a filler card with text.
Dot Tilbury, General Manager Isle of Man Stamps & Coins said:
"We worked closely with Clarence House ahead of the visit to arrange permissions to have a photographer follow the couple during their whistle-stop tour, so we could obtain the variety of images we needed to produce the special cover. We sent a cover to Clarence House so they could see the final product and we were delighted to be contacted by them asking for copies for Prince Charles & the Duchess. This is fantastic feedback and we very much hope that Their Royal Highnesses will be pleased with the cover and that it will be a lasting memory of their trip to the Isle of Man."
The first day commemorative cover is still available to buy at the price of GBP10 (QB96). Please visit our website at www.iomstamps.com to find out more about our Jubilee stamps and products.
