Royal Mail are to release a set of stamps featuring The Beatles‘ album covers next month.

They will include, as pictured: Help!, With The Beatles, Revolver, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Abbey Road and Let It Be.

Extract from The Times article:

It was only last year that the rule was deliberately broken that members of the Royal Family could be the only living people identifiable on British stamps – McCartney and Starr are still alive, while Lennon was killed in 1980 and Harrison died in 2001.

There was uproar among philatelists and royal-watchers alike in 1999 when Queen drummer Roger Taylor could be clearly seen in the background of a stamp honouring the band’s legendary late singer Freddie Mercury.

You can pre-order a presentation pack from Royal Mail Online now for £12.

See articles from The Times Online, DigitalSpy and BBC News website.
