1861. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Duke Of Edinburgh Dies At Age Of 99.

 ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง In June we were expecting a number of issues from across The Commonwealth to celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Queen’s husband, The Duke Of Edinburgh. Sadly this morning Buckingham Palace announced the death of the frail prince just 2 months short of his birthday. Perhaps we will now have mourning stamps instead of celebratory stamps. His long life of extraordinary service certainly deserves philatelic commemoration.
