Activities of the members of the Caidan Roses.
Tea in Honor of the Crown Princess
Traditionally, the Crown Princess is honored by the Ladies of the
Rose in Caid at an afternoon gathering hosted by her "grandmama" (the
current Queen's predecessor.) This is a time for the Ladies of the
Rose to reminisce about Caid's history and share their assembled wit
and wisdom with the Crown Princess.
Wreaths for Crown Tourney
The Ladies of the Rose prepare the rose and rosemary wreaths which
are bestowed upon the victor of the Lists and his/her consort. At Closing
Court, the Ladies of the Rose come forward and present roses to the
Queen's Champion Procession
Customarily, the Queen invites all the Ladies of the Rose present
at the Queen's Champion Tourney (the day after Coronation) to accompany
Her as she processes around the field to greet Her new subjects.
When a Queen becomes a Countess or Duchess, she is entitled to a procession
which often includes Ladies of the Rose whom she has chosen to accompany
her and participate in the ceremony.
The Caidan Roses work in conjunction with the Deputy Seneschal for
Regalia on all Regalia items.
