Prince Of Wales Wreath

Did you know that the Wreaths laid on the London Cenotaph each Remembrance Sunday by the Queen and Prince Charles and other Royals are ALWAYS THE SAME ? They are taken off and burnt and new ones are made in the Poppy Factory in Richmond by the 'Royal Wreath Maker' in his little area of the factory -- all Disabled and ex-Servicemen employed there so NO PHOTOS Allowed of them. I got the Samples in the Showroom. Also, did you know that not all the Wooden Memorials are 'Crosses' -- they make Jewish, Hindu and Islamic ones as well ! The Islamic one is not allowed to have a Poppy or any writing on it so it is plain wood. I got the Poppy Wreath made for Her Majesty's 90th Birthday and presented to her by her Daughter HRH Anne, Princess Royal -- it is signed 'Anne' and Buckingham Palace.
