Discover Price's Candles
Price's Patent Candle Company has had a close association with the Royal Family from the earliest days, when the launch of their new composite candle coincided with the wedding of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
Price's now holds four warrants for The Queen and The Prince of Wales and, in the name of Charles Farris, for The Queen and The Queen Mother. The company's special status as Warrant Holder means that it supplies candles for all Royal state occasions; coronations, weddings, lyings-in-state and funerals.
The first state occasion for which Price's Candles supplied candles was the funeral of the Duke of Wellington, the victor of the Battle of Waterloo, who died in 1852. The six tall candlesticks that surrounded his enormous sarcophagus in St Paul's Cathedral were not be used again until 1965 when Sir Winston Churchill's state funeral was held in the same cathedral; an event for which Price's also had the honour of supplying the candles. Price's made the candles used at Princess Elizabeth's wedding and coronation and at the wedding of her son Charles to Lady Diana.
Most recently the company supplied the candles for the funeral of Princess Diana in 1997.
