Royal Mail collaborated closely with the 78-year-old, who is the most successful albums artist in UK chart history.

A miniature sheet of four stamps will also be available, featuring photographs spanning three decades.

Sir Paul is one of only three solo music artists to be featured in a dedicated stamp issue, after David Bowie in 2017 and Sir Elton John in 2019.

The Royal Mail’s David Gold said: “Paul McCartney remains a vital figure at the centre of rock and pop.
