Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Surprise Hospice Residents With Their Wedding Flowers
Everybody’s talking about it— Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have taken the world by storm with their fabulous royal wedding. Even though it was their big day, they still managed to do a selfless act after the wedding bells rang.
The Grand Ceremony
The new royal couple was married in a beautiful ceremony at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018. Millions around the world watched as Harry and Meghan happily wed.
In English fashion, there was fancy attire and music, as well as gorgeous flowers in and outside of the chapel. It was definitely an impressive ceremony to see. But, it was Harry and Meghan’s kind gesture after the wedding that warmed people’s hearts even more.
A Sweet Surprise
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to surprise patients at St Joseph’s Hospice in London with some of their wedding flowers! Fifty bouquets from the royal wedding were delivered the next day, which definitely made the patients smile.
One special patient, Pauline Clayton, actually had a small connection to the royals. She used to work for royal dressmaker, Norman Hartnell, and helped to create many of Queen Elizabeth’s own dresses. She even worked on the 15-foot train she wore at her 1947 wedding to Prince Philip. Wow!
Flowers from Meghan’s own bouquet include sprigs of myrtle, which is a tradition for royal brides. However, Harry mixed it up and included flowers that he handpicked from the couple’s private garden at Kensington Palace. He made sure to add forget-me-nots, which were Princess Diana’s favorites!
Meghan, however, didn’t donate her own wedding bouquet to the hospice. In keeping up with English tradition, her bouquet now rests on the grave of the Unknown Warrior. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and other royal brides have kept that tradition alive for almost a century. It was nice, however, that Harry and Meghan thought to brighten up the days of others with this simple but sweet donation!
