Cementing their status as British rock royalty, Queen are to be honoured with a series of postage stamps from July 9.

They are only the third band feature on a UK stamp, following The Beatles in 2007 and Pink Floyd in 2016. Freddie Mercury featured on a stamp by himself in 1999.

Brian May said: “Sometimes it’s strange to wake up and realise the position in which we are now held – we have become a national institution! And nothing brings this home more than this incredible tribute from Royal Mail.”
