What Is Queen Camilla’s Favourite Rose and How To Preserve It?

Much like Queen Elizabeth had a deep-rooted passion for all things outdoors, so too does the soon-to-be-appointed Queen Camilla. In fact, she often discusses her love of gardening in interviews, stating that she would dedicate her entire day to it should she have the chance.

As a result, learning how to preserve the queen's favourite flower could be a great way to commemorate the coronation 2023!

What are Queen Camilla's favourite flowers?

When trying to learn more about the royal family’s favourite flowers, experts often focus on those they chose to display in their wedding bouquets. In her 2005 wedding to King Charles, Camilla chose to feature a mixture of lilies, camellias, hydrangea, roses, and lily of the valley.

Incidentally, the Lily of the Valley was also Queen Elizabeth’s favourite flower, and the bell-shaped white flowers are said to represent love, sincerity, and happiness.

How to preserve Lily of the Valley.

Learning how to preserve a lily of the valley rose is a great way to commemorate a special occasion or create an interesting peice of decor for your home. Furthermore, this means that you can enjoy flowers all year round, as opposed to strictly when they are within season.

Fortunately, discovering how to preserve the queen’s favourite flower is not necessarily a difficult task. To achieve this, you should: 

  • Carefully remove the leaves from the stem of the flower
  • Store the lily of the valley in a well-ventilated space, away from direct sunlight. 

You can then press these flowers, or display dried flowers in a vase. Alternatively, you can buy preserved flower arrangements online, meaning that your bouquets are sure to stand the test of time.

How to preserve the queen's favourite rose.

Queen Camila features a range of white roses in her wedding display, which were said to have been grown by Prince Charles himself. The method for preserving roses is the same method you would use to preserve Lily of the Valley, and other flowers, though you could also dip the flowers in a type of silica gel.

However, once again, the best way to enjoy roses all year round is to buy preserved roses. At the Magic Flower Company, all of our roses are treated with a specialist preservative, which helps them to retain their natural beauty for many months or even years, if cared for correctly.
