King Charles III left a note for the late Queen Elizabeth II in the funeral wreath on her coffin, writes bg-voice.com.
“In loving and devoted memory. Charles R.,” wrote the new king.
The royal family said on Twitter earlier today that the wreath “contains rosemary, English oak and myrtle leaves”, all cut from a plant grown from the myrtle used in the Queen’s wedding bouquet, seemingly paying tribute to the Queen’s late husband , Prince Philip.
The flowers of the wreath are gold, pink, deep burgundy and white, all cut from the gardens of the royal residences.
The hearse escort of cars with Elizabeth II left for Windsor Castle. The Queen will be buried at St George’s Chapel next to Prince Philip.
The ceremony will be attended by all of Her Majesty’s entourage and her relatives. Elizabeth II’s crown and scepter will be removed from the coffin, which will be kept until the coronation of King Charles III.
The service will start around 18:00 Bulgarian time, and the funeral itself will be held in a close family circle around 21:30.
