The Queen will be given a replica of the Coronation bouquet today in celebration of the 60th anniversary of her becoming the monarch.
The granddaughter of the late Martin Longman, of Longman's florists, who made the original bouquet for the monarch in 1953, has crafted a copy of the elaborate ensemble of blooms.
Lottie Longman used photos and an oil painting of the flowers to help recreate the exact bouquet and spent six months sourcing the flowers from across the UK.
Ms Longman said: "You have to wire every single flower individually. It's the old fashioned way of making bouquets. It's very clever. It has a little bump of moss and you put the wired flowers through and bind them with ribbon."
The monarch carried the teardrop shaped display of all white flowers on her journey to Westminster Abbey.
The Queen toured the military's leading rehabilitation centre for injured servicemen and women to learn about their long road back to health.
