London: Britain's Prince George gets a boost in a photo for a new British stamp set - thanks to some foam blocks and duct tape.

The toddler prince is pictured alongside his father Prince William, grandfather Prince Charles and great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II who he calls ‘gan gan’ in stamps issued to mark the queen's 90th birthday on Thursday.

 

The adults are seated, but a smiling George stands atop four foam blocks secured with tape so that his head is at roughly the same height as the others.

The group photograph has been issued as a sheet that divides into four stamps, one for each of the royals.

The blocks can't be seen on the stamp, but a full-length version of the image by photographer Ranald Mackechnie was released by the Royal Mail on Wednesday.
