Wreath Tribute to the Queen’s Beloved: Collection of Her Majesty’s Favorite Flowers on Her Coffin Shared Resemblance to Flowers at Prince Philip’s Farewell

A wreath of the Queen’s favorite flowers placed over her coffin also served as a touching tribute to her late husband, Prince Philip.

The wreath, which was prepared by Balmoral’s staff, included sweet peas, dahlias, phlox, white heather and pine fir – all collected from the Aberdeenshire estate.

Sweet peas – which were among the Queen’s favorite flowers – also featured in the wreath laid on the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin after his death in April last year.

Sweet peas, which are associated with April birthdays, can symbolize departure and farewell, while dahlias can represent a lasting bond between two people.
