Well, after learning that the poppy symbolised death and eternal sleep in ancient times, I'm very open to the idea (now) that that's the reason why it was in fact included rather than being just decorative.

All of the above MM. Totally unnecessary.

The fleur de lis can be seen right around the burial casket with the blue flower decorations (which I'm more inclined to refer to as funerary poppy decorations now). Not sure if it's on the other casket. I haven't bothered to check.

I don't really know where it comes from and whether it's from some evidence or theory, I would have to let someone with more knowledge on the subject enlighten me.
It depends if you believe the current narrative that the more elaborate burial casket contained the bones of King Phillip II and the other casket with the 12 rays contained the bones of one of his wives. If that's true, then it's hard to argue the rays representing the tribes point of view since both husband and wife were from the same era. If, on the other hand, they got it wrong, and the two burial caskets are from different eras, then who knows...

Chicho, considering the above, can you please provide some links referencing the poppy was a royal symbol and that the sun’s rays were representative of Macedonian tribes? I’ve never heard of either of these before.
To be honest i can’t exactly remember where I read up on it, but I’ve seen Macedonians on several social media pages a while back speak of the rays representing the Macedonian tribes as before Philip II’s reign there was only 8 rays. But as Ancient Macedonia grew and more tribes formed the Macedonian nation, it reached 16 tribes and the final product of the Macedonian sun consists 16 rays. So by logic and common sense it’s by far the most accurate assumption and makes the most sense.

As for the poppy I’ve read up and seen YouTube videos on Macedonia producing the most opium in the world, obviously showcasing that Poppy’s have alway been frequent in Macedonia. Then I saw Mario’s History Talks bring it up on YouTube and explain it further how it was clearly a symbol of Macedonia’s nature. As for Karposh’s finding of the poppy supposedly representing death in ancient culture. It mentions the red part of the poppy represented death/blood, but the poppy found on the tomb is Blue. So I’m not sure if this is the exact reasoning of the poppy placed on Philip II’s tomb. Who knows.

Anyone heard of or know more about this book from 1969?

The old Macedonians, by Duško Hr Konstantinov (Published 1969 in Bitola).
