Prestige’s royally-good hamper contains double chocolate cookies, a soft chocolate cake and chocolate truffles, all made in Yorkshire by Valley Bakery. There’s also English tea, a bottle of wine and raspberry jam.

They have also produced a special arrangement in collaboration with The National Gallery which features a portrait of Charles I reimagined through flowers.

Expert florists have taken inspiration from the painting by Anthony van Dyck called Equestrian Portrait of Charles I, which hangs in the London landmark, and replicated the colours and style.

Philip continued: “We have included red stems such as cordyline and rhodos roses and paired them with brown hypericum and gold ruscus, representing the rich tones of the horse’s coat and the gold chain.

“The inclusion of white calla lilies, avalanche roses and snapdragons are inspired by the highlights of the large portrait, which hangs in The National Gallery.

“Our florists then included blue eryngium, agapanthus and veronica to complement the reds and whites, creating a royal colour palette that will be perfect for sending to loved ones to mark the Coronation celebrations.”
