Details, details! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have picked a florist ahead of the royal wedding on May 19 — and the flowers they are choosing help benefit the environment!
Kensington Palace announced that the engaged couple have chosen florist Philippa Craddock to design their church flowers for the nuptials in a press release shared on Sunday, April 1.Not only will the wedding of the year be outfitted in beautiful arrangements of flowers, the Palace also announced that their displays will also be eco-friendly: “@RoyalParks will supply some pollinator-friendly plants from their wildflower meadows that will be incorporated into the floral designs. These plants provide a great habitat for bees & help to nurture and sustain entire ecosystems by promoting a healthy & biodiverse environment.”
“The floral displays in St George’s Chapel will be created using locally sourced foliage, much of which will be taken from the gardens and parkland of The Crown Estate and @WindsorGtPark,” the statement reads. “Where possible, Philippa will use flowers and plants that are in season and blooming naturally in May, including branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.”
