“For me, the magnificent, gloriously apparelled delphinium. With its impeccable bearing and massed in platoons, holds pride of place in my botanical affects” – King Charles III.
Delphiniums gained the name Queen of the Border since their tall flower spikes make excellent perennial borders in gardens and classic landscapes. Indeed, His Majesty King Charles III, has declared that his favourite flowers are the gloriously apparelled delphinium. It might then be assumed, that if his wife, and Queen Consort Camilla, were to be a flower, she would be a delphinium.
The name origin of delphiniums comes from the Greek word delphin (dolphin) due to the flower’s spur resembling a dolphin’s back. Queen of the Border is a feminine design, with Art Nouveau curves that comes crashing down like Hokusai’s Great waves off Kanagawa in which Prussian blue wood block paints invigorated a new art movement. The blue hues hand painted layer by layer, hold an electric mix of colour, where regal purples, soft cornflower and cobalt blues charge the senses through a host of delphiniums in flower and bud, each a reflection of its kind and yet something refreshingly unique.
Queen Consort Camilla will be a host to Presidents, Kings and Queens, Heads of State and so much more. Nevertheless, she will also be our Queen of Borders, protector and champion to a budding new generation, as well as the lost and the forgotten, in truth, those who she has, quietly and steadfastly, already served.
