I previously blogged about traditions that are carried out at royal weddings and I am pleased to hear that Prince William’s bride Kate followed tradition and has displayed her wedding bouquet at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey.

Kate’s bouquet that included sweet William, as well as myrtle, lily-of-the-valley and hyacinth was returned to Westminster after the ceremony and put on display for the public to view along with other flowers and trees which the couple had at their wedding.

The tradition was set by the Queen Mother, who lay her bouquet down at the ceremony itself in honour of her brother. I was a little surprised to see that Kate did not do this too, however the bride travelled back to Buckingham Palace with her bouquet in hand and it was later returned to the Abbey.

The bouquet and a selection of other flowers will be on display in Westminster Abbey until 6th May.
