Thank you Charles for what you have found and contributed here about the bouquets.
I too am amazed at how the information is growing. I had no idea of the traditions of the bouquets. We see so many occasions when the Queen and other royal ladies are out and about on their daily work, and they are presented with flowers, but this thread has opened up knowledge of many other occasions when the flowers are a very formal matter.
Not surprisingly, I have gone back to my royal souvenir books and started flipping through all over again, looking for bouquets. I have not yet found any more but I did wonder about a brooch worn by the Queen Mother many years back.
Perhaps there have been other coronation bouquet brooches.
