It's getting closer: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have revealed the chosen florist for their royal wedding, as well as the floral color palette they will have at the celebration!
According to E! News, the royal couple are opting for displays from locally picked flowers in shades of pink and white. Kensington Palace announced earlier today that the royal couple has chosen floral designer Philippa Craddock to create the arrangements for their celebration at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19.
Craddock is one of the palace's approved suppliers for royal events, and will be in charge of directing other florists from St George's Chapel and Buckingham Palace to create the arrangements. It's also reported that the florists will be use locally sourced flowers and many will be taken from the grounds of The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park themselves.
Craddock added that she will try to select flowers and plants that are in season in May, such as white garden roses, foxgloves and peonies (which happen to be Meghan's favorite flower!) Additionally, she will use branches of beech, birch and hornbeam for the event. Craddock announced her selections in a post on Instagram, but recently deleted the post.
"I am excited and honored to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle to design and create their wedding flowers," Craddock said in a statement. "Working with them 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."
She keeps a very active Instagram account, posting some of her creations to her page.
Kensington Palace added in their statement that the Royal Parks will also supply pollinator-friendly plants, which they say will "provide a great habitat for bees and help to nurture and sustain entire ecosystems by promoting a healthy and biodiverse environment."
