No stamp of approval?

By Autumn Brewington

We couldn't resist a headline pun based on this Toronto Sun report that Canada will not be issuing stamps to commemorate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The director of Canada Post's stamp services told the QMI Agency news service Tuesday that "We always feature the reigning monarch" and that "We didn't do Princess Diana's wedding to Prince Charles."

The spokesman said that Canada Post did, however, sell commemorative stamps issued by Britain's Royal Mail to mark the 1981 wedding of Prince William's parents, and "they were huge."

But it's not certain a British stamp is forthcoming. A Dec. 29 press release from Royal Mail on planned 2011 stamps says nothing about a stamp for the April 29 wedding, the article noted. There are, of course, four months for that to change -- and if it does, we hope the likenesses will be better than those on the royal engagement coin.
