Majesty (2)

Elizabeth once again, then a Princess, with her sister Margaret, on one of the many issues commemorating the 1947 Royal Family visit in Austral Africa.

The series of South Africa was issued in many forms :
* three stamps : King George VI in uniform, with his wife, the two princesses, and all with a legend in English ;
* these three stamps with legend in Afrikaan like here ;
* the two series overprinted "SWA" for use in the South West African mandate, formerley a German colony, and future Namibia.
