Is there special meaning behind the Queens funeral flowers?

Sitting watching this beautiful service, you can't help but notice how each and every tiny detail has been thought out.


The emotion on the faces of those Pall Bearers as they carried the coffin had me welling up as well as the beautiful words said throughout the service. She was truly loved by all.


Of course I was interested to know the meaning behind the Royal State Funeral Flowers. How wonderful to find that the arrangement was made up from flowers from each Royal garden! They were selected at the King’s request from the gardens at Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Highgrove, including some of Queen Elizabeth II’s favourites.


Flowers with special meaning have also been used such as Rosemary for rememberance, and English Oak symbolising the strength of love.


Myrtle, which symbolises a long lasting marriage was, incredibly, grown from a sprig taken from the late Queens 1947 wedding bouquet.


I also spotted a peony I'm sure, as well as pink roses, hydrangea, dahlias, and ferns.
