Queen's Head Could Disappear From Stamps

Britain's Telegraph reports, "The Queen's head could disappear from British stamps as part of plans to sell off the Royal Mail. Ed Davey, the postal affairs minister, admitted that the privatisation would mean future owners, which could include the German mail operator Deutsche Post, would be free to stop using a representation of the monarch, which has appeared on every British postage stamp since 1840."

According to the article, "Ministers are reported to be 'locked in frantic talks' with Buckingham Palace to discuss how the Queen will be represented – if at all – on future stamps."
