|General Description :||HM The Queen's Diamond Jubilee - (2012) HM The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The Diamond Jubilee stamps will be issued in time for the extended Jubilee Bank Holidays on 4 and 5 June, using archive photography show The Queen performing her official duties both at home in the UK and on the world stage. The stamps give an insight into the hugely diverse duties The Queen has performed; from delivering the first televised Christmas broadcast in 1957, to inspecting the 2nd Battalion Royal Welsh, as head of the UK’s Armed Forces, half a century later in 2007. The stamps demonstrate The Queen’s unwavering devotion to duty that has not faltered since the accession to the throne on 6 February 1952. This is the third and final stamp issue in 2012 to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The first was The House of Windsor issue (2 February), which featured a 1954 portrait of The Queen.
