White Roses for Princess Diana, what flowers for Kate?

Beloved Flower Lover,

In our research we found that White roses were Princess Diana’s favourite flower and Kate’s favourite are said to be white lilies – as they will both be in season in spring and summer when the wedding is due to be held, it is highly likely they will be included.

We also found that all royal wedding bouquets have included a sprig of Myrtle to symbolise a happy marriage, ever since Queen Victoria’s posy of snowdrops, the Queen Mother’s lily of the valley bouquet, the Queen’s British grown orchid bouquet, Princess Diana’s Edwardian cascade and Camilla Parker Bowles’ bouquet – most taken from Queen Victoria’s garden on the Isle of Wight.

We also found that all royal bouquets have also included fragranced blooms to evoke lasting memories.

When Kate Middleton walks down the aisle at Westminster Abbey  to meet the man she will marry, we are sure to find a lavish bouquet in her hands.

Princess Diana chose a cascading bouquet that stood nearly 4 feet tall, while Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, opted for a more modest ‘S’ shaped bouquet. So what would be the perfect arrangement of flowers for this future princess?

White lilies are at the top of the list. They are said to be Kate Middleton’s favourite flower. The white lily symbolizes purity, modesty, virginity and majesty.

Another leading contender? White daffodils. It is the national symbol of Wales and represents Prince William’s status as heir to the British throne.

Since, Kenya holds a special place in the heart of the royal couple as it is where the future King  asked for Kate’s hand in marriage. Could white Fairtrade Roses from Kenya also make the cut and join the royal arrangement?

We would love to see David Austin roses in the wedding. David Austin is a world-renown English rose breeder with 900 varieties of roses available including climbers and cut roses.  We consider that this would be a fitting tribute, perhaps, to Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana, who was known as the English Rose. It’s been estimated that the entire flower budget for this royal wedding could reach as high as £1 million.

In our research we found that the flowers may be sourced from Prince Charles’ beloved organic Highgrove garden or foliage from the Royal Gardens which has the highest quality and variety of English foliage available.

We are still guessing in our team, all we know is the style and shape of the bouquet depends on the fabric and design of Kate’s dress,”

“However once the flowers are right, everything falls into place. As the eyes of the world will be on the happy couple, the flowers will enhance the enchantment of the day.” Beautiful.

What a wonderful way to watch a day where a couple make a public commitment to each other and themselves.
