BOOK: WILDFLOWERS FOR THE QUEEN Famed for his portraits of Her Majesty The Queen and the Dalai Lama, Hugo Rittson-Thomas celebrates a very different cultural icon in his new book: the wildflower meadow. In partnership with conservation charity Plantlife, and with a foreword by their patron HRH The Prince of Wales, Wildflowers for The Queen celebrates the unsung beauty and diversity of wildflower meadows. Profits of the book sales go to Plantlife, a British conservation charity working to save threatened wild flowers, plants and fungi.
The hardback, large-format art title is inspired by the achievements of the Coronation Meadows and were established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2013. In the foreword written by The Prince of Wales, HRH explains: “The idea of the Coronation Meadows initiative was a simple one: to find the best surviving meadow in each county and use seed from that meadow to create a new one. Many of those wonderful meadows are now captured in this book.”
