Christmas stamps featuring a silhouette of the Queen for the final time have been released by the Royal Mail.
The new festive collection of Art Deco-style stamps depict images from the Nativity story, including the journey to Bethlehem.
They include the distinctive outline of the Queen for the last time in more than 50 years following her passing in September.
A silhouette of the profile of the late monarch facing left and wearing the Diamond Diadem has appeared on festive stamps since 1967.
The first and second-class Christmas stamp collection was designed by Kent-based artist Katie Ponder.
Each stamp also bears a barcode which customers can scan via the Royal Mail app to watch a festive video of Shaun the Sheep, created by Aardman Studios.
Royal Mail policy director David Gold said: “Our Christmas stamp issue is always much anticipated and it is one we particularly look forward to.
“The charming style of these designs sets the perfect tone for the festive season.”
People seeking to post Christmas cards this year are being urged to send them early.
Post Offices indicate they should be sent by December 19 for parcels using second-class stamps, and by December 31 for those sent first-class.
