About Stamp

On September 8, 2022, His Majesty King Charles III ascended the throne at the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The heir apparent since 1952, The King was invested as Prince of Wales by The Queen when he was nine years old. He was an early advocate for environmental issues and is the president or patron of more than 400 organizations, including many in Canada. Since his first official tour in Canada in 1970, His Majesty has returned numerous times. He and The Duchess of Cornwall (now The Queen Consort) made their most recent tour in 2022 as part of The Queen's platinum jubilee celebrations. The photograph featured on the Official First Day Cover was taken by Justin Tang in Ottawa during that tour.

This is the first time His Majesty King Charles III has appeared on a Canadian stamp. This issue follows a long-standing tradition of producing stamps that depict the Canadian sovereign, beginning in 1851 with a pre-Confederation stamp featuring Queen Victoria, King Charles's great-great-great-grandmother.
