These 3 Flowers Will Feature in Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Wedding

It's clear that Meghan Markle is certainly not an indecisive bride. The actress and soon-to-be royal has chosen a wedding cake and venue, is said to be in dress fittings, and has just confirmed the flowers that will adorn St. Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle on their big day. Kensington Palace announced that floral designer Philippa Craddock will oversee the church flowers.

In line with tradition, flowers and greenery have been chosen based on seasonality. "The displays in St. George's Chapel will feature foliage from The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park, and will use seasonal plants including branches of beech, birch, and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies, and foxgloves," the palace revealed. "The designs will reflect the wild and natural landscapes from which many of the plants will be drawn."

Sustainability is also top-of-mind for the royal couple, as it was incorporated at Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding. "The Royal Parks will also supply pollinator-friendly plants from their wildflower meadows," the palace said. "These plants provide a great habitat for bees and help to sustain healthy and biodiverse ecosystems." If history is any indication, you're about to see this trio of flowers and greenery at every wedding in 2018.
