Lloyd George recognised as a 'Great Briton' by Royal Mail
150 years after his birth, David Lloyd George is included in a new series of stamps recognising 'Great Britons'. Royal Mail say they hope the stamp will be a lasting tribute to the memory of the MP for Caernarfon Boroughs, who became Prime Minister during the First World War.
He is also remembered as the Chancellor of the Exchequer who laid the foundations of the welfare state in his 'People's Budget'. It introduced old age pensions for the first time, paid for by death duties on the wealthy.
The new stamp has been welcomed by Liberal Democrat AM William Powell, whose Mid and West Wales region includes Llanystumdwy where Lloyd George was brought up. He said that Britain's last Liberal premier was 'without doubt one of our nation's Prime Ministers'.
Welsh football legend John Charles appears on FA postage stamps
Former Welsh international John Charles is featured on a new set of stamps marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Football Association.
Charles, who died in 2004, is considered one of Wales' greatest ever footballers.
The stamp set celebrates 11 of the greatest football heroes from across the UK, with the players depicted in their home nation strip:
John Barnes (England); Gordon Banks (England); George Best (Northern Ireland); John Charles (Wales); Bobby Charlton (England); Jimmy Greaves (England); Kevin Keegan (England); Denis Law (Scotland); Dave Mackay (Scotland); Bobby Moore (England) and Bryan Robson (England).
Portmeirion features as part of a new Royal Mail stamp collection, depicting 26 landmarks across the country.
One of Wales' top visitor attractions, the North Wales village was created by architect Clough Williams-Ellis in a Mediterranean style starting in the early 20th century.
Huw Jones, Chair of Portmeirion Ltd, said "Portmeirion is known far and wide for its beauty and character and it is very appropriate that these stamps will carry that message across the world for everyone to enjoy."
