Royal Wedding: HRH Prince Charles & Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles

First Day Covers 8 April; Souvenir Wedding Day Covers 9 April; double-dated covers 8/9 April

Royal Mail issued a miniature sheet to commemorate the wedding of HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, and Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles.
Following the decision that HRH the Prince of Wales would represent the Queen at the 8 April funeral of Pope John Paul II in Rome, Royal Mail announced it would postpone the sale of its Royal Wedding stamps for 24 hours until Saturday 9 April, but that the official day of issue would remain 8 April.


Norvic Exclusive First Day & Wedding Day Covers

We produced covers for this sheet in a limited edition price 6.50. For 8 April we used postmarks L9512 & L9513.

At least one double-dated PO FDC with two complete sheets (one sideways) was sold on eBay for over 50.
We also have some double-dated covers at only 7.00 each. As Royal Mail did not allow cancels with the two different dates on the whole miniature sheet the sheets on these covers have been neatly split horizontally, with half postmarked 8 April and half 9 April. Only a very small number of our covers were prepared like this, and we have a few similar PO covers.
