White Orchids and Myrtle

Today the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh held their Diamond wedding anniversary celebration at Westminster Abbey. All their children and Grandchildren were present.
Buckingham Palace released sixty facts.
I like the fact that her Wedding Bouquet was made of White Orchids, with a Sprig of Mryrtle grown from Queen Victorias original wedding bouquet.
The next day the Queen returned to Westminster Abbey to place her Bouquet on the tomb of the Unknown soldier, as her own mother did after her wedding day.
I am a Royalist, and love our monarchy. The tradition and history through thousands of years.
