Even though they had a very lavish wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are giving back to the community. According to a Facebook post from St. Joseph's Hospice in London, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle turned their wedding's flowers into bouquets for patients at St. Joseph’s Hospice in London.

The hospice facility shared a post on Facebook on Sunday that the staff had just received the “very special delivery” of “beautiful bouquets made from the #royalwedding flowers.” Along with their post, they shared a sweet picture of a patient holding one of the bouquets they were sent.

“Today we got a very special delivery," St. Joseph's wrote. "Beautiful bouquets made from the #royalwedding flowers which we gave to our patients. A big thank you to Harry and Meghan and florist Philippa Craddock. Our hospice smells and looks gorgeous. Such a lovely gesture ❤️” St. Joseph’s wrote.

Craddock designed the floral displays at the chapel for the ceremony and at St. George's Hall for the lunch reception. The florist has previously worked with Kensington Palace, British Vogue and fashion houses Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior.

Craddock opted for in-season flowers, some picked from gardens and parklands of the Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park. The palace revealed that her designs meant to evoke the natural landscapes much like places where they were gathered from.

“I am excited and honored to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle to create and design their wedding flowers,” Craddock previously said. “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.”
