Stamps to mark Queen's 80th birthday
A set of stamps celebrating the Queen's life is to be issued to mark her 80th birthday.
The Isle of Man Post has produced a collection which includes photographs of the monarch as a child, on her Golden Jubilee tour and with grandson Prince William.
The first of four 20p stamps in the set of eight shows the young Princess Elizabeth pictured with her baby sister Princess Margaret alongside their father and mother, then the Duke and Duchess of York, in January 1931.

The other 20p stamps use photographs of her in her Auxiliary Territorial Service uniform at the wheel of a truck during the Second World War, in a tiara around the time of her accession in 1952, and with the Duke of Edinburgh and their four children in 1972.
The relaxed family portrait was taken by the Queen`s first cousin once removed, Lord Lichfield, who died in November..................

A selection of the postage stamps issued by the Isle of Man in the United Kingdom to mark the 80th birthday anniversary of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II on April 21st this year. The Isle of Man, situated in the Irish Sea between England and Ireland, has its own postal service separate from the Royal Mail. The stamps highlight memorable moments from the monarch's life.

I notice the Isle of Man's stamp issue bears the 'motto' "Eighty Years of Duty and Service". Anyone have any idea if the official 80th celebrations will have such a theme?

I hear the slurping noises from here. Whoever came up with this claim counted the baby and toddler years as duty and service.

I have a quetion, why in the stamps it has a photo of the ''old'' family and not a photo with the ''new'' family. for example, the queen with her sons and grandchildren

As far as i know like the previous Monarchs, The Queen also has two birthdays, one is her actual birthday, and the other one is the Sovereign's Birthday which often helds on a certain second Saturday in June when the weather is good.
Thanks for this thread, purple_platinum, i'm sure how wonderful it will be with lots and lots of pics of Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with her coming 80th birthday wish all the best wishes for her and her family.:)

Interesting, I didn't know this. Also today I learned something new! :)

Does anyone know anything about foreign guests yet? I know that it's too early to know much, but I was just wondering if it's known to which events foreign royals and dignitaries will come (or if at all)?

This link answers your question I think It all started with Edward VII, she seems to have different official birthdays in different countries.

Not any more information has been released yet,sara,but we hope that maybe at the National Thanksgiving Service for Her Majesty's birthday on 15th June, there will be some European Royals like at the Queen Mother's 100th birthday National thanksgiving Service in 2000, we saw King Constantine and Queen AM, The King and Queen of Belgium together with Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte.

I love that there is a garden party for children, that sounds really cute. will a lot of members from other royal families be travelling to London for these dinners? 80 is a big deal, so I hope it's a huge, international family celebration!:)
