Royal Couples - Sunday Stamps

For Viridian's theme of birth, marriage, death and other life changes I have selected three royal couples to show. Two of the marriages were not to last.

Great Britain
Princess Anne & Captain Mark Phillips
Prince Andrew & Sarah Ferguson
And in the week when a royal birth was expected, I have to include, from a first day cover -

Prince William and Catherine Middleton
The FDC will soon find its way to Willa.

For other  life changing events move over to Sunday-stamps-130.

Interesting to see the style of stamp portraits though the years. Looks like the Queen will have set off on holiday before the baby arrives.

I especially like the Princess Anne & Captain Mark Phillips stamp.

Oh I hope it wasn't being featured on a stamp that jinxed the marriage!

I remember we had a day off school to watch Princess Anne's wedding on tv :).

Hmm, I hope the fact that you are using two failed marriage pictures doesn't bode ill for the third set.

Glad I am not a reporter on the Royal Baby Watch, especially in all the heat you guys have been having.
