In loving and devoted memory. Charles R.“, can we read on this word placed at the top of the wreath, either in French “In Loving and Devoted Remembrance – Charles R.” the “R” meaning “Rex”king, in Latin.

This card is not the only element of the coffin which is on the initiative of Charles III. The king is also responsible for the composition of the floral crown that adorns the coffin. The latter contained foliage of rosemary and oak, but also myrtle, from a plant grown from the myrtle that was present in the wedding bouquet of Elizabeth II in 1947.

After the ceremony, the coffin and the royal procession took the direction from Wellington’s Arch to Hyde Park Corner, near Buckingham Palace. Then, on board a hearse, the coffin will go to Windsor, where a new ceremony will be held, and where the queen must be buried in the family intimacy of the chapel of Saint-George.
