Isle of Man Post Office has produced a postmark to record the truly historic moment in time when not only HM The Queen becomes the Longest Reigning Monarch but also H R H Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh becomes the longest serving Consort, in service of the Nation and Commonwealth.

Following the calculation prepared by Buckingham Palace that the accolade of Longest Reigning Monarch will pass from HM Queen Victoria to HM Queen Elizabeth at around 5.30pm today the Isle of Man Post Office was able to initiate a special item and postmark design incorporating our aptly named 'Windsor Road' Post Office branch" along with the relevant time of 5.30pm.

This is a one day only official postmark and truly significant in recording a momentous milestone in the reign of H M Queen Elizabeth II and Her Consort H R H Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh.
