Rita Ora ‘honoured’ with postage stamp from native Kosovo in touching tribute

Rita Ora has been “honoured” with her own postage stamp in her native country Kosovo in a heart-touching tribute.

The gift was a suprise by the country to mark her 32nd birthday on Saturday (November 26) and after more than 10 years at the top of the international music scene.

Rita who recently reportedly married Taika Waititi, took to Instagram to share a picture of the gesture, which revealed her face perpetuated on the stamp.

The Poison singer shared that she’s “so grateful” for the tribute after her grandfather received a similar honour for his dedication to Arts and Film.

In the stamp image, Rita donned a mass of blonde curls and a bold red lip, with the star revealing she could not receive the stamp in person due to her work commitments.

Her caption read: “I feel so grateful today. Thank you to @postakosova for special this beautiful surprise for my birthday.

“I am so sorry that I'm not able to be there and receive this in person due to work commitments, but when I can, I will be sure to come and visit you and show my appreciation! Thank you!

“And to everyone else, thank you for all my birthday wishes. I’m so lucky to have the best fans, friends and family. I can’t wait to show you all what I’ve been working on. Bring on 2023! Watch this space! I love you!”

Rita was appointed an honorary ambassador of Kosovo in 2015.

Kosovo Post chief executive Faete Kadiu said: “She has given us so many beautiful moments and endless pride with songs, performances and grand concerts.

“Let this beautiful stamp be also a symbolic gift of Kosovo to our singer, on this special day for her, for her extraordinary contribution to our country and our nation.”

Rita was born in Pristina, in former Yugoslavia, to Albanian parents, who relocated to London a year after.

Along with a snap of the stamp, Rita also shared images from her recent birthday break, including photos taken during her workout and her birthday cake.
