Five other stamps with images of Charles have been released.

Last week another new image was released of the heir to the throne playing affectionately with his youngest grandson, Prince Louis, who is being held by his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The adorable snap – taken by photographer Chris Jackson – was released by Buckingham Palace ahead of the UK premiere of a new BBC documentary titled Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.

In the documentary, Charles’ wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall gushed about how amazing a grandparent her husband is.

“He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours, you know making funny noises and laughing and my grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him,” she said, according to The Express.

“He reads Harry Potter and he can do all the different voices and I think children really appreciate that.”

His eldest son, Prince William, also praised his father’s grandparenting capabilities, although he admitted he would like Charles to “have more time with the children”.
