The wedding of Princess Diana and Princes Charles may have happened over 30 years ago, but it's gone down as one of the most memorable days in recent history.
And one very special guest at the esteemed royal wedding has revealed that she’s actually kept a memento from the day – and that she still treasures it even now.
India Hicks, who was one of Princess Diana’s bridesmaids on the special day at Westminster Abbey, recently shared that she has held on to her flower crown from the big day.
She posted a photo of the floral headpiece on Instagram. The crown as adorned with a range of flowers, designed to compliment Diana’s wedding bouquet, which was made up of fressias, gardenias, and lily of the valley. And it seems the keepsake has managed to stay in remarkably good condition in her cabinet.
Alongside the photo, India, wrote, ‘The preserved flower wreath I wore as a bridesmaid to the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana sits among 18th century ornamental Chinese white jade dishes.
‘They don’t smell quite as good now as they did on the day, but they do bring back some pretty fantastic memories.’
