The strict rules all royal brides must follow on their wedding day

Many brides choose to have their wedding bouquets dried or pressed as mementos from their wedding day, but royal brides don’t get that option.

In keeping with another royal tradition, every bride must lay their bouquet at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey out of respect to those who lost their lives in war.

Many do this immediately after their ceremony, while others travel to the Abbey days later to place their bouquets.

It is a tradition that began in 1923 when Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the Queen’s mother, placed her bouquet there in memory of her brother, who was killed at the Battle of Loos in 1915.

Even Princess Beatrice, who wed in Windsor in secret during the UK lockdown, had her bouquet sent to Westminster Abbey.
