About Stamp

In 1939 Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited the Dominion of Canada. Thus Canada had the signal honour of being the first of the Commonwealth nations to welcome the new King and Queen in person. To honour this historic occasion and add to the warm sincerity of Canada's welcome, the Post Office Department issues three special commemorative postage stamps to coincide with the tour of Their Majesties throughout the Dominion. The stamps were printed in two colours each.

Princess Elizabeth & Princess Margaret Rose

Portraits of Their Royal Highnesses, The Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, from photographs taken by Marcus Adams, Limited, London, England.
