A commemorative Royal Wedding stamp shows Kate Middleton and Prince William split by a perforated line. And it’s causing an uproar!

The stamp, which can be purchased in the Pacific Island nation of Niue, can be torn apart, allowing the public to use each side of the picture as an individual stamp.
William’s side of the stamp is worth NZ$1 (47p) more than Kate’s side.

Hugh Jefferies, editor of Gibbons Stamp Monthly, told the Daily Mail that the stamp, which was created by the New Zealand Post, was embarrassing and badly designed.

He said: “Whoever designed this will have egg on their face and someone’s head will roll. I’m sure they didn’t mean to ominously suggest the couple could be easily separated, it’s just a very bizarre design.”

One of the New Zealand Post’s other stamps got William’s date of birth wrong.

But NZ Post Stamps and Coins general manager Ivor Masters told the Daily Mail that out of the 3000 presentation packs with the birthday mistake that were sold, only two customers asked for their pack to be replaced.
Masters said that the design for commemorative stamps had been approved by the Queen, New Zealand’s head of state.
