In some ways I am glad that Royal Mail continues to issue products such as these as it reassures me that my decision to mostly give up collecting its ‘special’ stamps and not waste my money on them is fully vindicated. It surprises me that Buckingham Palace continues to allow the Queen’s head to be printed on such philatelic trash.
