King Charles's Silhouette Appears on New UK Stamps

The Royal Mail has issued its “first Special Stamps to feature the new silhouette of King Charles III,” with the monarch’s likeness seen on a series showing the nation’s favorite flowers.

The Royal Mail had previously published images of the new standard King Charles stamps, but these will not be widely used until stocks of stamps bearing the late Queen Elizabeth’s likeness have run down.

The flower stamps will therefore be the first bearing the king’s image to enter wide use. Credit: Royal Mail via Storyful
