Queen Mother's stamp of success.

STAMPS to commemorate the Queen Mother's 100th birthday, and featuring great-grandson Prince William, have attracted international interest as the special day approaches.

The set has been ordered in its thousands worldwide, Royal Mail said yesterday. The Queen Mother collection includes one stamp featuring four generations of the Royal Family.

And the Royal Mail has already produced 750,000 stamp presentation packs - more than double the normal quantity for a commemorative stamp issue.

A Queen Mother Presentation Pack and a copy of a specially commissioned poem by Poet Laureate Andrew Motion will be sent to everyone celebrating their 100th birthday this year.
