On May 19th of this year, Prince Harry will marry American actress Meghan Markle in what is expected to be the “wedding of the year.” The big day is less than two months away and Royals’ fans are eagerly waiting to see the decorations, Markle’s dress, and celebrity attendees.
Fortunately for fans, Kensington Palace continues to release updates regarding the upcoming wedding. Recently, the palace provided details about the church flowers, which will be designed by floral designer Philippa Craddock.
According to the Royals’ website, Philippa and her floral team will create gorgeous arrangements to display around St. George’s Chapel and St. George’s Hall. The arrangements will consist of a great variety of fresh local flowers and plants.
“Where possible, Philippa will use flowers and plants that are in season and blooming naturally in May,” the statement said. “These will include branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves. The designs will reflect the wild and natural landscapes from which many of the plants will be drawn.”
The statement continued, “The Royal Parks will also supply some pollinator-friendly plants from their wildflower meadows, which will be incorporated into the floral designs. These plants provide a great habitat for bees and help to nurture and sustain entire ecosystems by promoting a healthy and biodiverse environment.”
The palace noted that all arrangements will be donated to charitable organizations after the wedding.
The couple, who got engaged late last year, has a beautiful and humorous proposal story. Ahead of their big day, the two opened up about the special evening Harry proposed; watch their interview below:
