Monaco Post issues new stamps to mark the tenth wedding anniversary of the Prince and Princess of Monaco – Royal Central
La Poste Monaco has issued three new stamps to mark the tenth wedding anniversary of the Prince and Princess of Monaco.
One stamp depicts Prince Albert and Princess Charlene on their wedding day, while another is a family portrait including their twins. A third photo shows the Prince and Princess of Monaco on the balcony of the Prince’s Palace.
The set of stamps, 40 x 30 mm each, honoring the royal wedding cost € 6.00.
These stamps follow the new release of the Princely Family stamps in April. This shipment features Prince Albert and Princess Charlene with their six-year-old twins, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, in an official image by Eric Mathon. The size of this stamp is 4.85 x 52mm, and it costs $ 2.56.
Both sets of stamps can be purchased from Stamp Office.
Prince Albert of Monaco married South African Charlene Wittstock in a civil ceremony in the Throne Room of the Prince’s Palace in Monaco on July 1, 2011. A religious ceremony followed on July 2 in the courtyard of the Prince’s Palace. Upon her marriage, Charlene became Her Serene Highness the Princess of Monaco.
Albert and Charlene had twins, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, on December 10, 2014 at the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco. Gabriella was born two minutes before her brother; however, Prince Jacques is the heir to the throne because Monaco respects the cognatic primogeniture of male preference. This means that males take precedence over all sisters in the line of succession, and only those descended from the reigning monarch can be in the line.
