New issues on July 1st:

50th Anniversary of the Maritime Police of Monaco
(Police Maritime et Aéroportuaire)

This body was created by Prince Rainier in 1960, and the vessels assigned to it were
the Launch "Grace Patricia" (1961 - 1970), and the current launch "Vigilante".

Perhaps not quite so appealing are A stamp about canning food, and another about the invention of the gas engine....

On July 1st, 2010, the "Poste Monaco" issued an envelope celebrating the Centenary of the "Ballets Russes", in collaboration with Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo.

The envelopes can be bought ready stamped or without stamp.

The Event concludes on July 17th, 2010.

No idea. I very much doubt it. It's only for weddings, I think.

IF Albert decides to have a wedding stamp, what sort of image would we want to see??

A "Rainier and Grace" side view? Or frontals?

I'm not actually sure whether PA would be allowed NOT to have a wedding stamp.

The new Christmas stamp - Noël 2010 - was issued on October 4th 2010 - a traditional image of reindeer and Père Noël....

The Centenary of the Lycée Albert Ier was also celebrated on October 4th, 2010:

Earlier in April there was an issue commemorating the birth of Mother Teresa, and in Septembre, the TER train (through the tunnel) was celebrated philatelically.

Another update on the philatelic front !

On February 21st 2011, the OETP issued a stamp for the visit of PA to the Irish Republic. This was followed by an issue about the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters on March 2nd.

The Bicentenary of the Birth of Napoleon II seems a strange subject for a Monegasque stamp, but then.... why not?

Even more strangely, there will be an issue on March 24th, celebrating ..... wait for it .... THE CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW !

A month later, the Lions Club International's 50th aniversary is the subject of a stamp, and, last not least, the Centenary of Monaco's Cathedral.

I've been trawling the OETP site for a wedding stamp, but there isn't one. Hard to believe.....

New stamp issue on 5th May 2011:
In association with the National Education Direction, the OETP has organised a stamp design contest on the theme "Environment and Ecology in Monaco". The stamp represents the design of the winner.

Still no sign of wedding stamp.....

This is nice and a good thing, I wish I had started a stamp collection when I was young

That's exactly what my father always used to say. In my teens I actually started a Monaco stamp collection, but when I was at university, I sold them .... with sadness.

Anyway, I wish they'd got their act together, partly with a decent philatelic website, and partly because of letting the collectors dangle....

I do hope that the next set of photos for the stamps are better than these because IMO they are NOT flattering to either party.

Lady Mac, I too have been horrified by the lack of workmanship towards the wedding stamps.
I don't know what went wrong, but these designs wipe out all the kudos that Monaco had for decades !

One of the differences is Grace always knew her best side and what hair style flattered her. Charlene hasn't learned that and her slicked back hair on those stamps and in general is not flattering at all. How she looked at her wedding with the sweep across her forehead is what she needs. I would like to see that on a stamp.
