Jersey Post issued a set of six commemorative stamps on 6 July celebrating the life and achievements of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Britain’s longest serving royal consort.

The Duke of Edinburgh passed away at Windsor Castle on 9 April at the age of 99. Jersey Post’s Chief Executive Officer Tim Brown said: ‘The Duke of Edinburgh served the Crown and Britain dutifully for decades and we are honoured to be able to pay tribute to his life of service through these commemorative stamps.’

Designed by Osborne Ross Design, the stamps feature a selection of black and grey duotone printed photographs, highlighting some of the many facets of His Royal Highness. Featured across the six stamps are informal portrayals of His Royal Highness as a global ambassador, horseman, supporter of industry, military dignitary, sportsman and royal consort.

Entitled HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh: A Life of Service, the stamp issue will be available to buy from all branches of Jersey Post from 6 July 2021.
