The King will lay a different wreath to the one used by Queen Elizabeth II on Remembrance Sunday, in the first shakeup to the British sovereign's wartime tribute in 70 years.
The news comes shortly after it was revealed that Charles III isn't streamlining the monarchy just yet, despite the previous speculation that he was narrowing down the institution amid the UK cost-of-living crisis.
His Majesty has designed his personal wreath to have a 'wide ribbon' with his family's racing colors of purple, red, and gold, according to the Telegraph (opens in new tab). As the Queen had done every year throughout her reign, the King will lay the piece at the Cenotaph in London during the National Service of Remembrance on November 13. Camilla, Queen Consort has also had her own wreath specially made, but it's understood that she will have an equerry lay it on her behalf instead.
While the King's wreath will look similar to Queen Elizabeth II's, it's understood that Charles' garland will feature 'far fewer' poppies than his late mother's one, which was adorned by 93 beautiful poppies. His Majesty will have just 50 flowers, but they'll be made to appear larger, ensuring that the piece doesn't look undone or sparse.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton will have a joint wreath with red colors to represent the Wales family. It's understood that the King, Queen Consort, and the Prince and Princess of Wales were all involved in the design of their wreaths ahead of the commemorative service later this month.
