GETTYRoyal wedding: The flowers have been chosen particularly for their pollinator-friendly properties
The couple has chosen floral designer Philippa Craddock, who has been named “Queen of London florists” by Vogue, to create the church flowers for their big day on May 19.
The flowers have been chosen particularly for their pollinator-friendly properties.
The couple will be surrounded by white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves on their wedding day.
Aisles, pews, tables and halls will be lined with plants from wild flower meadows which Kensington Palace said are picked to: “Provide a great habitat for bees and help nurture and sustain entire ecosystems by promoting a healthy and biodiverse environment.”Related articles
The bee-friendly plants will be potted and re-planted after the wedding, while cut flowers will be given away to charities.
Ms Craddock, a self-taught florist based in Central London, with a studio in Fulham and a flower shop in Selfridges, said: "I am excited and honoured to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle to design and create their wedding flowers.
"Working with them has been an absolute pleasure. The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun.
