The 1943 issue featured Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret on triangular stamps as proposed and rejected for the 1939 Health issue. These stamps were exceptionally popular - in fact on the first day of issue there were long queues and almost as many stamps were sold as had been for the complete 1942 Health issue. Realising the popularity of the princesses, the 1944 Health stamps also featured both princesses.
