Harry And Meghan Donated Their Wedding Flowers In A Truly Beautiful Way

Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle married on Saturday at Windsor Castle, in a fairytale-like ceremony inside St. George’s Cathedral.

Now officially the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the royal couple kicked off their marriage with a moving gesture by donating the wedding flowers that were decorating the outside of the chapel to hospices and women’s refugee centers. The flowers that were used inside the church we left in place for other weddings scheduled to take place later this week.

This is fantastic! The “cascading hedgerow” was taken down from the West steps last night and sent to, among others, here ??The flowers inside St George’s chapel were left for another wedding this week. Lucky Bride! loved the hedgerow!

Flowers were sent to St. Joseph’s Hospice in London, prompting a gracious Facebook post in which the facility thanked the royal couple and florist Philippa Craddock for their “lovely gesture.”
