THE HIDDEN MEANINGS BEHIND THE ROYAL'S FAVOURITE FLOWERS
We reveal the meanings behind some of the Royal Family’s favourite flowers.
King Charles III – Delphinium
Camilla, Queen Consort - Alchemilla Mollis
Catherine, Princess of Wales - Hyacinths
QUEEN ELIZABETH II - LILY OF THE VALLEY
With the sad news of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen, floral tributes poured in from the nation as they paid their respects to the Royal Family.
We know that certain flowers have their own special meaning, and the significance of the wreath that adorned The Queen’s coffin didn’t go unnoticed. Filled with white flowers, which are often used in funeral arrangements as a mark of sympathy, they were a delicate nod to The Queen’s husband, Prince Philip.
Flowers have the power to convey a message when words are simply not enough. On this occasion – a time when history stopped – bouquets have flooded the streets of Britain in honour of the late Queen; a gesture which speaks a thousand words to say thank you to our Queen.
