The Queen and Prince Philip's 1980 card.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
The 31 greetings cards carry various images of the Royal couple on the front along with different members of their family.<br />
<br />
They were sent every year without fail from 1971 through to 2001 to the unnamed recipient, who was clearly an acquaintance of the Queen.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
They are being sold in Cirencester on Friday.
