Jubilee by Rachel Bishop
Senior Designer: Rachel Bishop
When Prince Philip married Princess Elizabeth more than 70 years ago, he gave up everything for the woman he loved. He abandoned his Danish and Greek royal titles, and even his surname to become Britain’s longest serving consort. As such, senior designer Rachel Bishop felt that it was just that the flower named Clematis Prince Phillip, should stand as a design in itself. Each petal holds gently-waving edges, coloured mauvey-blue with a pink-red bar through the middle and all meeting in a central crown of brown-tipped stamens, set against a pure ivory ground. The rich colours of the petals wave like flags in jubilation as they celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
