Let’s find out more about the King.
When he was 20 years old, Charles became the Prince of Wales and has since dedicated his life to public service and charity work. The King has many other interests as well. You may have heard that he’s passionate about nature and the environment, organic farming and sustainability. But did you know that he’s an author as well as a very good painter?
Let’s meet His Majesty the King!
Feel all over the rectangular shape on the right side of the page. (Pause) This is a Royal Mail stamp featuring a picture of the King’s head. We’ve made it a lot bigger than a real stamp, so you can feel His Majesty’s face in detail.
