Canada Post has released its first definite stamp featuring King Charles as monarch. The Crown corporation says it is the first time the King has appeared on the Canadian stamp. The stamp was released at the ceremony in Ottawa marking the King's coronation. Canada Post says the stamp continues the corporation's long-standing tradition of issuing definitive stamps depicting the Canadian sovereign, dating back more than 170 years. It says the tradition began in 1851 with a pre-Confederation stamp featuring Queen Victoria, the King's great-great-great grandmother. The definitive stamp features a portrait of Charles by photographer Alan Shawcross.
