Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been happy to see the love they got from their fans, so they sent thank you cards to those who sent them wishes on the day of their wedding
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have also been happy to see the love and support they have got from their fans and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to thank everyone who sent their well wishes their way on the day of their wedding (May 19). The pair sent a thank you letter in an envelope featuring the palace's crest along with a beautiful picture of the pair which was taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski after their wedding. The black and white picture showed Prince Harry and Meghan sitting on the steps of Windsor Castle with her hand resting on Harry's legs. The candid shot showed the pair comfortable and happy in the company of each other.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overwhelmed by all the incredibly kind cards and letters they have received on the occasion of their Wedding, and are so touched that you took the trouble to write as you did. It really was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated by Their Royal Highnesses who send you their very best wishes," read the note that was sent to the fans.
Meghan and Harry have always taken a step further and thought about others. It is no surprise that their wedding was any different. On the day of their wedding, St George's Chapel, where the pair got married, at Windsor Castle looked spectacular. The castle was decorated with beautiful flowers that made the venue look even more breathtaking.
However, once the wedding was over, they were used for a very special purpose, to make bouquets for hospice patients. The flowers were sent to St. Joseph’s Hospice in London. The healthcare facility took to Facebook to share the news about the special gift they had received. Accompanying their announcement was a photo of a patient with her arms full of the flowers.
The couple had a very special meaning attached to the flowers they chose for the venue. Harry, who had always been close to his late mother, Princess Diana, wanted to make sure that the wedding reflected parts of her life. As a special tribute to her, Harry, Duke of Sussex, chose white garden roses that are also believed to be one of the favorites of Diana. At the same time, Meghan's bouquet also held special meaning. The bouquet was filled with Forget-Me-Nots (Princess Diana’s favorite flower), scented sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia, and sprigs of myrtle.
Traditionally, in a royal wedding custom dating back to Princess Victoria royal brides typically carry at least one sprig of myrtle in their bouquets. Myrtle symbolizes hope and love. The flowers were handpicked by Harry from the gardens at Kensington Palace. Per Kensington Palace, florist Philippa Craddock used plants and flowers that are in season and blooming naturally around the time of May 19. The wedding arrangements also included branches of beech, birch, and hornbeam as well as foxgloves and peonies.
