Prince Harry, Meghan confirm florist, pick Diana's favourite flower for royal wedding

Posted April 03, 2018

George's Chapel, a frequent location for royal weddings but one that sets them apart from Kate and William, at least.

Harry and Markle have released several details in the last month about their royal wedding that is estimated to cost $45 million, according to British wedding site Bridebook.

Floral designer Philippa Craddock will create and oversee the flower arrangements inside St George's Chapel where the couple will get married, as well as inside St George's Hall for the reception.

Markle is reportedly paying for her own dress for the event, which Bridebook estimated to cost $450,000 to $560,000.

Meghan Markle will walk down the aisle surrounded by peonies, foxgloves and white garden roses when the USA actress marries Britain's Prince Harry, Kensington Palace said Sunday. The Kensington Palace said the arrangements will "reflect the wild and natural landscapes from which numerous plants will be drawn". These will likely incorporate beech, birch and hornbeam branches and white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.

"I am thrilled to share with you that we have been asked by Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle to create their wedding flowers in May", Craddock wrote as she shared the exciting news on Instagram.

He said "I'd buy them Cards Against Humanity".

Having Diana as a role model prompted Meghan to campaign to ban a sexist soap advert at the age of ten, claims Morton, and inspired her to help out a homeless shelter.

The singer was pally with Prince Harry's mother, Princess Diana, and sang at her funeral in 1997.

"She loved the colours and the brightness [of the garden]".

"Because I'm from the states, we don't grow up with the same understanding of the royal family", said Markle.

It is not clear what colour scheme the couple have chosen, but the designs will feature white garden roses in memory of Princess Diana.

With film producer Trevor remaining at the couple's LA home while they tried to make the relationship work long distance, insiders say it wasn't long before things began to change between the pair.
