Meghan Markle will copy this aspect of Princess Diana’s wedding when she marries Harry
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding is fast approaching and the Suits actress will pay tribute to Princess Diana in one special way, her floral designer has revealed. Latest royal wedding news and updates show Princess of Wales is at the forefront of Meghan’s mind.
Meghan Markle has figured out an ingenious way to pay a touching tribute to the late Princess Diana when she marries her youngest son in May.
The 36-year-old Suits actress, who is engaged to Prince Harry, 33, will use her bouquet to nod to the Princess of Wales on the wedding day, which is taking place May 19.
Meghan Markle’s wedding flowers were revealed to be designed by Philippa Craddock.
Kensington Palace has revealed that Craddock, who is self-taught, will direct a team which includes florists from St George’s Chapel and Buckingham Palace to create the displays at St George’s Chapel and for St George’s Hall.
The London-based floral designer has worked with the couples to create beautiful blooms that will be in season in the month of May.
Meghan will have elements of greenery from The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park, a nod to the family she will soon be part of.
She will carry peonies, a personal favourite, and white garden roses as a nod to Princess Diana.
Princess Diana’s White Garden at Kensington Palace is a nod to the late royal, the mother of Prince William, 35, and Prince Harry.
According to Vogue the colour scheme was inspired by a Mario Testino photoshoot of the Diana, who wore cream and white in the images.
Sean Harkin, head gardener at Kensington Palace, told the fashion magazine on the inclusion of white and cream roses: “I think lots of people would refer to Princess Diana as the classic English rose,” he said. “It felt like it was a must to include them.”

He added: “Earl Spencer, Princess Diana’s brother, gave some forget-me-nots to her when they were younger. They stayed with her as one of her favourite flowers, so it was important to include them.
“We have hundreds of white lilies, because people recall she left a lot of those cut flowers around her apartment here at Kensington.”
Meghan’s flowers will feature white roses, as well as foxgloves.
Ms Craddock is based in Central London, with a studio in Fulham and a flower shop in Selfridges.
She said: “Working with (Harry and Meghan) 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.”
