About The Royal Legacy of Queen Victoria – King George V

George V, Queen Victoria’s second-eldest grandson, came to the throne on 6 May 1910 following the death of his father, Edward VII. Born on 3 June 1865, George started his career in the Royal Navy but found himself first in line to the throne after the untimely death of his elder brother Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale.

On 12 July 1921, King George V visited the Island of Jersey. At the time he was only the second reigning monarch to pay an official Royal visit to the Island and it was this visit which occasioned the design of the Parish crests Jersey still uses today.

Featuring images sourced from the National Portrait Gallery, six stamps and a Miniature Sheet illustrate a timeline of King George V’s reign.
