Commemorative Stamps Mark Prince George’s Birth

Mirror/Isle of Man
 

To celebrate the momentous occasion of Prince George’s Birth, the Isle of Man Post Office is the first postal administration to mark the third in line to the throne’s birth as they release a sheet of eight stamps congratulating William and Kate.

The set includes four stamps showing the proud father and four of a smiling Kate. A gold-foil postmark with the words “It’s A Boy” will be used to cancel the stamps when the postal tribute is released on August 21 with a limited numbered edition of 500.

If you would like to order these, here is the information I have received:
