The Queen and Prince Philip's 1972 card.
A comprehensive collection of Christmas cards sent by the Queen and Prince Philip over a 30 year period have emerged to highlight the fascinating changes of the Royal Family.
The 31 greetings cards carry various images of the Royal couple on the front along with different members of their family.
They were sent every year without fail from 1971 through to 2001 to the unnamed recipient, who was clearly an acquaintance of the Queen.
The first card features a formal photograph of the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, a 23-year-old Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, aged 11 and seven-year-old Prince Edward.
They are being sold in Cirencester on Friday.
