This is something that escaped our radar in the Charlotte Brontë bicentenary celebrations in 2016:
British Indian Ocean Territory Stamps
Literary issue (July 2016). They celebrate famous British writers and the well known characters they created:

Roald Dahl and Fantastic Mr Fox (100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth on 13 September 1916)
Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit (150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s birth – the release date of this issue coincides with her actual birthday of 28 July 1866)
Charlotte Brontë and Jane Eyre (200th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte’s birth on 21 April 1816)
