The creators of the spectacular sea of poppies that engulfed the Tower of London to mark the centenary of the start of the First World War will be honoured today.
Sculptor Paul Cummins, 37, and theatre designer Tom Piper, 50, will receive MBEs from the Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace in recognition of the immensely popular 'Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red'.
The artists previously met William, along with the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry in August when the royals toured the powerful display of 888,246 ceramic poppies that progressively filled the moat at the Tower - one for each British or Colonial military death during the First World War.
