Long To Reign Over Us

Collection Issue Date: 6th February 2016

Her Majesty the Queen celebrates her 90th birthday in 2016.

To mark the 90th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, acclaimed royal photographer Arthur Edwards MBE and Isle of Man Post Office have produced this set of eight stamps.

Issue Information

The Isle of Man Post Office is thrilled to showcase the work of veteran royal photographer Arthur Edwards MBE in the year that Her Majesty the Queen celebrates her 90th birthday. We are very grateful to Arthur for his support of our stamp issue and hope the collection forms a fitting tribute to both photographer and subject on this landmark occasion.
With a career spanning almost forty years, Arthur has travelled the world as The Sun newspaper's royal photographer, taking some of the most well-known and intimate pictures of the Queen and the royal family at numerous locations in more than 100 countries.


His incredible journey has seen him cover the Queen's Silver, Golden and Diamond jubilees, four royal weddings, the births of Princes William and Harry at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London and, three decades later, Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the same hospital.


Arthur was born in 1940 and educated at St Bernard's Roman Catholic Grammar School, Stepney, London. His mother bought him his first camera, a Rolleiflex, for his 18th birthday after he told her that he wanted to be a photographer. In 2003 the Queen presented him with the prestigious MBE for outstanding service to newspapers.
The Long To Reign Over Us issue is available as a set of eight stamps in mint condition or cancelled to order (CTO). Individual sheets of 20 are also available in addition to a Presentation Pack and First Day Cover.
