A Guernsey stamp celebrating the birth of Prince George of Cambridge has been given royal approval.

The £3 stamp shows the third in line to the throne and his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge leaving hospital after his birth.

The design has been approved by the Queen and the Duke of Cambridge and will be issued on 24 September.

The four babies born in the Bailiwick of Guernsey on the same day as the prince will be sent a free framed copy.
