Isle of Man's Special Delivery to Buckingham Palace

Sat, 20 May 2023

Local postman Paul Timson has hand delivered a bespoke gift made for Their Majesties King Charles III - Lord of Mann – and Queen Camilla, to Buckingham Palace, on behalf of the people of the Isle of Man.

Isle of Man Post Office (IOMPO) was asked by the Cabinet Office to make the special delivery, which took place on Wednesday (17th May) and was made possible through a collaboration effort between Isle of Man Post Office, the Cabinet Office, Isle of Man Airport, Loganair and London City Airport.

The gift is a handcrafted wooden bowl, inlaid with peregrine falcons made from recycled silver. Designed and made by Manx artists, it reflects the Monarch’s life-long passion for the environment and traditional craftsmanship – whilst referencing the Island’s rich heritage, language and culture.

The gift started its journey at Government Offices in Douglas to Postal Headquarters, Isle of Man Airport and London City Airport before reaching its final destination at Buckingham Palace in London. On arrival at the Palace, Paul had special permission to be able to travel through the gates and make the personal delivery to the Royal Household Mailroom.
