Despite all the sadness – good news for all letter writers, philatelists and admirers of the Queen: The stamps with the Queen’s likeness are still valid.
London – Millions of British stamps with the likeness of the late Queen Elizabeth II remain valid – this has been confirmed by the national postal service Royal Mail.
If and when new stamps with an image of King Charles III. will be produced is still unclear. “We will announce future stamp issues in due course,” the Post said. “As usual, we will consult Buckingham Palace before making any further announcements.”
According to the Royal Mail, the mailboxes with the insignia of the late Queen will not be exchanged either. “As in the past, all existing mailboxes will remain unchanged after the death of the monarch. Mailboxes already in production or being prepared for installation will also retain Queen Elizabeth II’s insignia.” dpa
