This flower was not planted intentionally, how it got in our back garden or what it is we do not know, all I know is I like it very much. The photo does not do justice to the lustrous, velvety, dark hues. - sorry about that! The next photo shows all the flowers on the plant.

Is this it.......

It looks to me it could be, but I'm not confident I could be a judge on this. Too ignorant and inexperienced. Here I will defer to the opinion of you and others.

I do think it worthy of such a grandiose name.

I'm 99% certain that it is Alstromeria psittacina, although not Royal Star, as mine has variegated foliage. For that reason, I prefer yours!
