New Zealand is joining the rest of the Commonwealth in celebrating the birth of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge with this special stamp issue!
Since the recent birth of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, New Zealand Post has been excitedly working around the clock to offer the customers a commemorative coin and stamp issue. Now the official approval for these products from Her Majesty The Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is received.
Born on 22 July 2013 to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George is third in line to the throne and will one day become "King of New Zealand". The large collectable stamps in this issue picture the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge cradling the baby Prince outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London. A first day cover is also available, as well as a presentation pack. The presentation pack has been written by Dr Sean Palmer, Chair, Monarchy New Zealand and gives further insight into the significance of Prince George's birth.
