Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plan to honor Princess Diana in a very special way at their summer wedding
The flower arrangement at the Royal wedding will be a combination of Meghan's and Diana's favorite flowers.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's summer wedding is just a month away and the preparations are in full swing. The couple, who has broken most rules so far in terms of their whole take on royal protocol has yet again chosen to step outside the box. They will be paying a tribute to the late Princess Diana at their wedding and it is in a very sweet but extremely significant way.
Prince Harry will have his father Prince Charles on the big day along with his brother Prince William and his wonderful sister-in-law Kate Middleton, but he surely will miss his mom at this crucial point in his life. Afterall, who wouldn't? This is perhaps why the couple has figured out a way that she can be present with them in their memories and metaphor. The flower arrangement will be a combination of Meghan's favorite flowers and Diana's, side by side.
Princess Diana's tragic and mysterious death has been the center of many controversies since it's occurrence on August 31, 1997. According to People, St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on the wedding day will have white garden roses, which were Diana's favorite flowers and peonies, which are Meghan's favorite.
"I am excited and honored to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle to create and design their wedding flowers. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure. The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative, and fun. The final designs will represent them as a couple, which I always aim to achieve in my work, with local sourcing, seasonality, and sustainability being at the forefront," said floral designer Philippa Craddock.
Meghan Markle's engagement ring also has a little bit of Diana in it, since Harry added them from her personal collection. It seems like he sees a reflection of his late mum in Meghan and it appears to be working wonderfully for them.
