The new set of stamps to commemorate the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, has been designed by Royal Mail design director Barry Robinson. The set of five 26p stamps shows photographs of the Princess by Lord Snowdon, John Stillwell, Tim Graham and Terence Donovan. The special issue is expected to raise several million pounds for the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. It goes on sale from 3 February. A set of heraldic commemorative stamps, entitled The Queen’s Beasts and created by independent designer Jeffrey Matthews, will also be issued by Royal Mail next month.
