King Charles makes his debut appearance on a commemorative stamp

The Royal Mail is releasing the first commemorative stamps featuring the image of King Charles, whose silhouette may be seen on a collection of stamps featuring well-known garden flowers.

These stamps will likely be the first to feature the King’s face that the general public will see.

This design replaces one that has been featured on commemorative stamps since 1968 and features the Queen’s head.

The last batch of new stamps featuring the image of the Queen was released last month.

According to Royal Mail’s David Gold, the use of floral images for this historic batch of stamps reflects the King’s passion for gardening.

The new first- and second-class regular stamp designs featuring King Charles were previously made public by the Royal Mail.

But those new stamps won’t start to frequently appear in the mail until supplies of the current stamps featuring the late Queen’s had run out.

The new King Charles first and second-class stamps are not anticipated to become widely available until the following month.

The late Queen’s head will no longer be used on memorial stamps as a result.

It had been used to commemorate hundreds of occasions and ideas, including Thomas the Tank Engine, Christmas, the Concorde, and Doctor Who.

The Royal Mail has carried out long-term arrangements made before the Queen’s passing in September thanks to the long-term planning for such commemorative stamps.

Nevertheless, the last set, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Flying Scotsman, was only revealed in February. Charles’ silhouette will now be visible on all such special issues.
