Encouraged by the early promise of summer, the spectacular tulips in the Queen Victoria Memorial Gardens have bloomed three weeks early, according to the Daily Mail.
The early appearance is a blow to Royal Parks staff who were hoping the beds would be at their colourful best on April 29.
Instead, an army of gardeners will be on stand-by, ready to chop the heads of any drooping tulips in the days before the wedding.
Spokesman Frances Therrien said: ‘The gardeners inspect the beds carefully every week. There won’t be any bedraggled, sorry-looking blooms on the wedding day. The wallflowers will be looking beautiful.’
