CENTRAL to the invitation to Coronation guests is the Green Man at the bottom of the design.
He is an ancient figure from folklore, symbolic of spring and rebirth, to celebrate the new reign.
The figure is wearing a crown of flowers emblematic of the United Kingdom . . . roses (England), daffodils (Wales), thistles (Scotland), shamrock (Northern Ireland).
His beard and hair are formed of leaves — oak, ivy and hawthorn.
The British wildflower meadow border features lily of the valley, cornflowers, wild strawberries, dog roses and bluebells.
Some flowers are in groupings of three, marking The King becoming the third monarch of his name.
There’s also a sprig of rosemary for remembrance, particularly of Queen Elizabeth II, The King’s late mother.
Wildlife in the border includes a bee, a butterfly, a ladybird, a wren and a robin perched on a C made of wood and lily of the valley.
The coats of arms of King Charles and Queen Camilla are seen top left and right respectively.
The lion, unicorn and a blue boar (taken from the crest of Camilla’s father, Major Bruce Shand) are among the flowers.
Her arms are enclosed by the Garter, following her installation as a Royal Lady of the Order of the Garter last summer.
