Jersey Post & Go celebrates the Royal Wedding
The first overprint to appear on a Jersey Post & Go JE02 stamp in 2018 will celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Saturday 19 May, Jersey Post has revealed.
The engagement of the Royal Couple was announced on 27 November 2017, and they will be married, before 600 guests, at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post explains: “The overprint, which will appear on the Jersey Crest stamps, will read: Prince Harry & Meghan Royal Wedding 19/5/2018, accompanied by an illustration of wedding bells. The overprinted stamps will be available from the day of the wedding until Saturday, 26 June.”
Jersey Post’s most recent Post & Go issue, Visiting Naval Vessels, will continue to vend from the JE02 kiosk but will not carry the commemorative overprint.
Jersey Post’s JE02 series Post & Go kiosk, powered by Royal Mail, is located in Jersey Post’s Broad Street post office in St Helier. A limited number of Collectors’ strips featuring the Royal Wedding overprint will be available to order at www.jerseystamps.com or by contacting the Jersey Philatelic Bureau on: 00 44 (0)1534 616320.
