Post Office gives Queen’s jubilee the stamp of approval
The Bermuda Post Office has joined in celebrations of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a commemorative stamp series.
The Platinum Jubilee, marking the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, was formally celebrated in Bermuda, Britain and across the Commonwealth last week.
The stamp series is made up of photographs of the Queen taken between 2010 and 2016.
Included notes for the series said in part: “During her long reign, Her Majesty has become a much loved figure, not only in this country and the Commonwealth but throughout the world where her experience and knowledge are respected by fellow national leaders.
“Her Majesty supports and encourages achievement in all walks of life through the annual programme of investitures, garden parties, receptions and other awards given in her name, which allow her to say ‘thank you’ to all those who have contributed to the life of the nation and the Commonwealth.”
The Platinum Jubilee Commemorative stamps can be bought from the General Post Office in Hamilton, as well as various sub post offices around the island.
