8 April 2005 - Royal Wedding MS - Norvic FDC limited edition of 20
Royal Mail issued a miniature sheet of four stamps in two designs to commemorate the wedding of HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, and Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles.
Following the decision that HRH the Prince of Wales would represent the Queen at the Friday funeral of Pope John Paul II in Rome, Royal Mail announced it would postpone the issue of its Royal Wedding stamps for 24 hours until Saturday 9 April.
The miniature sheet was not reprinted, but the stamps were not generally available to buy until Saturday, the postponed wedding day of The Prince of Wales and Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles.
The official issue date remained as 8 April and special postmarks were used. Similar postmarks were also used on 9 April, the actual date of the wedding.
