Kate Middleton news: Duchess insisted on luxury item at Royal Wedding

The Duchess of Cambridge may have shared her wedding day with millions around the world as she married Duke of Cambridge Prince William, but there are still many details that are coming to light about the royal wedding nine years on. While it’s customary for brides to choose their perfume for the day carefully, Kate Middleton went one step further for her special day. It’s reported that the Duchess requested that her favourite scented candle would burn as she walked down the aisle. 

It has already been confirmed that Kate chose to wear a niche scent for her big day. 

The bride wore White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum, a floral fragrance by a then little-known British perfumer. 

However, more details have emerged about Kate’s favourite scents – and not just the ones she chooses to wear. 

The style icon’s favourite home scent has been discovered as it’s reported that she insisted on marrying Prince William while the candles burned in Westminster Abbey.

According to the brand, it’s a very popular scent for brides on their wedding day. 

“Historically, orange blossom has been a symbol of eternal love and often placed in the bridal bouquets across Italy, Spain and France,” said a spokesperson for the brand. “The scent symbolises love, longevity and fertility.”

The fragrance is said to be “inspired by a shimmering garden oasis” with a combination of clementine flower, white lilac and orriswood notes. 

Jo Malone’s orange blossom collection is the most popular range for brides-to-be, and the company even offers consultations on how best to scent your wedding. 

“Scented candles bring an enchanting aura to your day, enveloping your guests in scent and dancing candle light whilst cementing future memories,” commented the brand. 

The home fragrance products have recently been updated with a frosted glass design for a limited edition collection. 

With a burn time of approximately 45 hours, the candles are expertly made in the UK. 

The news gives royal fans an insight into what products the Duchess might have in her home. 

Kate Middleton has been giving the public a small taste of what her home life is like in recent weeks as she makes TV appearances via video link during lockdown. 

The Duchess has called into programmes such as This Morning as well as the BBC to discuss her charity projects. 

Prince William has also joined in the interviews to discuss mental health and the new issues that come with homeschooling the three children. 

The royal pair celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary on April 29 2020.
