The Prince and Princess, beautiful bride with her cascading bouquet, including orchids, lily of the valley, roses and ivy. Her wedding fragrance featured citrus notes of bergamot and grapefruit combined with white honey and vanilla, symbolic of sweetness and warmth – encapsulated by ‘The People’s Princess’.
The next generation of royalty saw the eldest Prince, William, marry Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge in 2011. Her matrimonial perfume included the fond floral tones of lily, jasmine and ylang-ylang.
