I like the white and gold strapless gown with the sheath like covering that goes over the left shoulder. Very chic and regal. It could be worn today. I would for some of the old gowns that have been saved up to be used again if they are still in good condition.

It's absolutely wonderful news,selrahc4!Thanks lots for that, I'm so looking forward to see that if it'd be on TV and through pics from image agencies, we can have a review of all the Queen's beautiful dresses and her impressive Tiaras.Im sure it will be really wonderful with Her Majesty's Celebrations this year.

Thank you RoyalProtocol. The only 'glittering' pic is the first of the 58p stamps, where the Queen is wearing what appears to be the Nizam of Hyderabad tiara. The best photo is the first, taken by Lord Lichfield on the deck of the Britannia. The original pic, in colour, shows the Queen at her most relaxed and natural.

I really love the new stamps to commemorate the Queen's 80th birthday. She looks so happy and relaxed in them. I am glad that more down to earth poses were included instead of HM in tiara's and state robes. Thanks for posting the stamp preview. Does anyone out there know whether other Commonwealth countries are issuing stamps for her birthday as well?

She really does have a wonderful smile.

I love that photo of the Queen, one of my very favorites.

(photo from NPG)



Here is some background about that photo (taken in 1971) from The Country Life Book of Queen Elizabeth II, A golden Anniversary Tribute (Foreward by The Earl of Lichfield):

"While on board Britannia Lord Lichfield was subjected to the indignities meted out to those making a sea crossing of the equator for the first time. He was covered with shaving soap and ducked in a pool several times but, ever-vigilant photographer that he is, kept a waterproof camera at the ready and managed to capture this delightfully spontaneous shot of the Queen laughing at his discomfiture."

I've just bought one of the Isle of Man 80th birthday mini-sheets. They really do issue some lovely stamps. I'm glad to see that the GB ones are nice as well; some of the recent stamps from there have been rather marginal.

Queen's Birthday Stamps

Most commonwealth countries will be issuing stamps for Her Majesty's Birthday, Including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Gibraltar, IOM, Jersey, Gurnsey, Alderney and most of the Carribean Commonwealth which are still Queen's Realm's.

Indeed it's a really great website, I love it! Professionally done with a great and stylish layout, easy to navigate - and the contents is just wonderful, there's so much great stuff to look at! I hope this website won't disappear after her birthday, it should stay as a great resource.

I spent far too much time looking at everything at that site, when I should have been working!

I agree with GrandDuchess, hoping that it will stay permanently available.
