WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO THEIR HAIR?!?!?
Not that there aren't good things, mind. The costumer seems to have borrowed a rather large leaf from Rohan, and Tuck's finally showed up.
As the wonderful lady who informed me of all of this said, "History romance coma!" Isn't it loverly?The bouquet contains stems from a myrtle planted at Osborne House, Isle of Wight, by Queen Victoria in 1845, and a sprig from a plant grown from the myrtle used in The Queen’s wedding bouquet of 1947.
The tradition of carrying myrtle begun after Queen Victoria was given a nosegay containing myrtle by Prince Albert’s grandmother during a visit to Gotha in Germany [I am pretty sure this is Augusta Reuss of Ebersdorf who was also Victoria's grandmother]. In the same year, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Osborne House as a family retreat, and a sprig from the posy was planted against the terrace walls, where it continues to thrive today.
