Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms. Philip was Consort to the Queen, life-mate, and Duke of Edinburgh.
DS – Document Signed: Oversized formal document, 13 June 1998, granting the Dignity of the Ordinary Member of the Civil Division of the Order of the British Empire. Bestowed upon James Dow Davidson. Bears a blind-embossed seal and the fountain-pen ink signature of Queen Elizabeth. Prince Philip has signed as Grand Master of the Order of the British Empire. Light isolated foxing but, overall, very good to fine. Professionally matted in Continental Blue linen board with watercolor giclee portraits of the Queen and Prince Philip. Ready for your own frame treatment.
NOTA BENE: Since 1956 and the introduction of the mechanical writing device, the Autopen, most letters, documents and signed photographs of the Royals were mechanically-produced using a template, not authentically-signed. This is a highly desirable document genuinely signed by both.
