Photographer Vincent Mentzel has selected six photographs for a set of stamps, released in the Netherlands to celebrate the 50th birthday of King Willem-Alexander. One of the photographs used actually features Kim Wilde, on a poster in the background.

Various photographs were taken in 1985, when Willem-Alexender, then crown prince, celebrated his 18th birthday. Wilde Life reported on these photographs in 2013, when he became the King of the Netherlands. One of these photographs has now ended up on the set of stamps, released on Wednesday in the Netherlands. As far as we know it's the first time that Kim Wilde is featured on a postage stamp.

The stamps can be bought in post offices in the Netherlands and online via the PostNL Collect Club.
