Lily of the Valley played a prominent role in the Royal Wedding, especially for Kate’s bridal bouquet and the hairpiece worn by Pippa, the maid of honor and sister of the bride.

Featuring broad, spear-like foliage and fragrant little white bell-shaped flowers, the Lily of the Valley symbolizes a return of happiness, purity of heart, sweetness, humility, happiness and love’s good fortune.
