The representatives of the royal families are always commemorated with magnificent philatelic issues. But the first stamp with little prince or princesses is always a great event in the world of philately.
StampNews.com invites our readers to throw a look at this great stamp with a cutie Spanish princess on it.
Nine-year-old Princess Leonor of Spain, the next in line for the throne, has been honoured with her own postage stamp. The Princess of Asturias has been featured in 310,000 stamps celebrating the Princess of Asturias Awards.
This is the first year the awards are under the name Princess of Asturias, as it was formally under the title of her father, Prince of Asturias, for nearly 35 years. During the last awards, Leonor's father presented the awards as King Felipe VI of Spain.
Leonor's father was also nine years old when he first appeared on a Spanish stamp, with the title Felipe of Borbón, Prince of Asturias and Basilica of Covadonga in 1977. Young Leonor is set to turn 10 on 31 October.
