BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Babies often receive flowers at their christening.
But Britain's Prince George will receive a wildflower meadow in the Transylvanian hills, a friend of his grandfather Prince Charles said Tuesday.
"If we sent flowers they would wilt, so this is a symbolic gift," Count Tibor Kalnoky told The Associated Press.
"Wild flowers are fragile like newborn babies. This gift will protect this area and contribute to raising public awareness so that rare flowers can be protected," said Kalnoky, a conservationist and a friend of Charles, who looks after the prince's property in Transylvania.
Kalnoky was a guest at the wedding of young George's parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Charles is enamored with the rural life in Romania and visits the country every year.
