Queen Elizabeth’s unusual hobby: Monarch likes to collect common kitchen item

“Not only because she owns some of the world’s most valuable stamps, but also because she has built on a family treasure and feels she has done her father and previous monarchs who owned it proud,” Fabulous published. 

The rarest and most expensive stamp in the collection is said to be the Mauritian stamp which is valued at £2million. 

The stamp is one of the most prized in the world and was issued by the colonial Post Office of Mauritius in 1847. 

The Queen also spent £250,000 on a unique set of 10 Penny Blacks which are dated from the first day that they came into circulation, May 6, 1840.
