Britain's Queen Elizabeth will be presented with a bouquet of royal roses today (15.05.12).
The monarch and her husband Prince Philip will attend the Diamond Jubilee South London Lunch where students from the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers' Classic Flower Design course have created special floral table arrangements to wow the royal couple.
The royal will also be presented with a special bouquet of Queen roses and a selection of lilac, pink and white flowers.
Gillian Wheeler, Principal of The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers said that the chance to design flower displays fit for royalty is a wonderful opportunity for the academy's students.
She explained: "A royal luncheon needs to be a feast for the eyes as well as the taste-buds. Her majesty will have seen flower arrangements from all over the world and from some of the best designers. Our arrangements need to excite the senses, have relevance to the occasion and demonstrate the best design originality."
The visit to south London is the second part of Queen Elizabeth's jubilee tour of the capital and crowds of up to 100,000 are expected to turn out to see her and help to celebrate her 60-year reign.
