The remaining flowers are “scented pelargoniums; garden roses; autumnal hydrangea; sedum; dahlias; and scabious,” according to the palace, “all in shades of gold, pink and deep burgundy, with touches of white, to reflect the Royal Standard, on which it sits.”
Symbolic references to the Queen could be spotted throughout the funeral, with multiple family members, including Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, wearing mourning outfits that honored the late monarch. Even Princess Charlotte paid subtle tribute, wearing a small horseshoe pin in homage to her great-great-grandmother’s love for horses.
Prior to the state funeral, the Queen lied in state at Westminster Abbey for four days, with guests waiting in hours-long queues to pay their respects.
During the lying in state, the coffin looked much the same as it did during the Sept. 19 funeral. However, when in Scotland, the coffin, made of English oak, was covered with the Crown of Scotland and a wreath of white flowers.
