New Stamps To Mark Swedish Anniversaries

  February 24, 2016 at 3:59 pm by

The Swedish court released three special stamps to mark their two special celebrations of 2016. The king and queen will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary this year and on April 30th the king will celebrate his 70th birthday.

The stamps feature King Carl XVI Gustav, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle. Pince Daniel has not been included for some reason. The stamps were designed Daniel Bjugard, with the help of photographer Anna-Lena Ahlström. They will be available from March 17th onwards.

    My guess on why Prince Daniel was not included on this set is because the middle stamp shows the King and the first two in the line of succession (Victoria and Estelle). Perhaps a future set will include Daniel.

    You are right, Katie. As well as the Queen Silvia is not in the middle stamp. The King and the future Queens. The line of succession.
