Flowers from the late Queen and Prince Philip’s wedding were placed on the coffin at her funeral.

King Charles III gave his mother’s funeral coffin a special finishing touch. Discover what.

The Queen’s coffin was removed from its in-state location on Monday and is currently travelling to Windsor Castle for the last ceremonies before her burial. At the Westminister Abbey in London, royals from all around the world gathered to watch the procession of the Queen’s coffin. King Charles III, the late Queen’s adored son, took particular care to give the flowers a special meaning.

The newly-elected King asked that the flowers from his mother’s wedding bouquet with Prince Philip be placed in her coffin. According to Page Six, a statement from the royal family’s Twitter account read, “At The King’s request, the wreath contains foliage of Rosemary, English Oak and Myrtle (cut from a plant grown from Myrtle in The Queen’s wedding bouquet) and flowers, in shades of gold, pink and deep burgundy, with touches of white, cut from the gardens of Royal Residences.”

While the late Queen was being carried in her funeral procession, other items were present as well. Her crown and sceptre were carried with the casket from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey and put in the centre of the cathedral where the royal family had come to pay their condolences and attend the late Queen’s funeral service. In addition to placing a letter on his mother’s casket during the funeral service, King Charles III gave his mother’s funeral a lot of thought “In cherished and loving memory. Chuck R.” Along with the King and his Queen Consort, the two estranged brothers Prince William and Prince Harry, along with their wives, accompanied the parade. Prince George and Princess Charlotte sat next to their parents in church as Prince William brought two of his young children as well.
