We're now only 31 days away from the royal wedding, and on Tuesday learned that Prince William and Kate Middleton's engagement portrait will adorn a new set of stamps released by the UK Royal Mail service.

"We are honored to be celebrating this special occasion," the Royal Mail’s Stephen Agar said about the postal incarnation of the prince and his fair lady, based off portraits shot by photographer Mario Testino.

The prince has been featured on royal stamps in the past, one in commemoration of The Queen Mother's 100th birthday in August 2000, and another when he turned 21 three years later.

The stamps will be released on the Queen's birthday of April 21, just more than a week before Prince William and Kate exchange their "I do's" at the historic English church Westminster Abbey.

The young lovers, who met as students at Scotland's St. Andrew's University back in 2001, are slated to get married April 29.
