Learn What the New Royal Couple Did With Their Wedding Flowers
Following the Royal Wedding watched live around the world, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry—the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex—decided that they shouldn't let the voluminous flowers that decorated their gorgeous ceremony go to waste. So the newly minted husband and wife donated them, in two different and very special ways.
First, Meghan and Harry had a number of the flowers that had been used to decorate St. George's Chapel (by florist Philippa Craddock) delivered to a nearby hospice, called St. Joseph's.
The hospice posted to Facebook about the incredible donation they had received, saying that "Our hospice smells and looks gorgeous." As you can see in the photo above, the white blooms and green decorative pieces are truly a sight to behold.
In addition to the hospice donation, Meghan followed the tradition of royal brides before her by gifting her bridal bouquet to the Grave of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey. The tradition, which is meant to honor soldiers who died during World War I and other military conflicts, was started by Elizabeth, the current Queen of England.
After months of planning and a massive celebration, one would forgive Meghan and Harry if they had simply whisked away on a honeymoon. Instead, the happy couple showed their selflessness through these heartwarming actions. Three cheers for them!
