The South Georgia Post Office is issuing a set of stamps to mark the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton.

The 70p value shows William and Kate laughing and smiling together as they watch the England versus Italy rugby union match at Twickenham, Middlesex, Britain - 10 February 2007.

The 95p value shows the couple in the State Rooms, St James's Palace just after the announcement of their engagement.

The £1.15 value is a beautiful portrait of Catherine Middleton as she joins Prince William for the wedding ceremony. Her veil, made of layers of soft, ivory silk tulle, is held in place by a Cartier 'halo' tiara, belonging to The Queen, which was made in 1936.

The Post Office has also released a souvenir sheet with a £2 stamp showing an official Royal Wedding portrait of the bride and groom in the throne room at Buckingham Palace. The background of the souvenir sheet shows Westminster Abbey during the wedding ceremony itself.
