The big day for Prince William and Kate Middleton has finally arrived - and the Barrier Daily Truth is giving you the chance to win a commemorative memento of the spectacular occasion.

In conjunction with Australia Post, the BDT has five prize packs to be won and all you need to do to be in the running is fill in the coupon which appears on Page 13 of today's BDT.

Included in the pack are the two commemorative stamps struck for the Royal Wedding - one a domestic rate of 60 cents (as seen above) and the other in the international rate to the United Kingdom of $2.25.

"Australia Post is delighted to commemorate the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton," Australia Post Managing Director and CEO, Ahmed Fahour said.

"We trust this special stamp issue provides collectors and the public with a memento to mark this historic and happy event.

"The Royal Wedding stamps follow the recent stamp issue commemorating the 85th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II."

The Royal Wedding stamps were designed by Jo Mure from the Australia Post design studio and feature an image of the couple taken after their engagement was announced in November.
