The arrangement of blue, lilac and red wine roses arrived the evening of Thursday, July 24 at St James’ Park, in the heart of London, as a present of the Government of Ecuador, through its diplomatic mission in the United Kingdom, specially made for the Dukes of Cambridge, William and Catherine, to celebrate the birth of her infant son of just four days, George, Prince and third in the line of succession to the British Crown.
It was a bouquet of InfiniteRoses, a special type of roses, natural, but treated especially so it lasts about one year without wilting.
“It was a very considerate gesture and the Dukes were delighted to receive a nice bouquet,” said a spokesman of Kensington Palace, the residence of the Dukes in London.
InfiniteRoses are roses that grow in the Ecuadorian Andes. Once the flower is at its optimum point is collected by hand. Then it is dehydrated and it is treated with a solution based on natural oils to keep its shape and texture and for its great significance was selected by the Government of Ecuador.
