UK's Harry and Meghan pick fashion favorite for wedding flowers

"Meghan Markle have chosen floral designer Philippa Craddock to create the church flowers for their wedding", the account wrote. The royal wedding will take place among white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves, set off by branches of beech, birch and hornbeam.

Morton writes in the new book that Markle was devastated when Princess Diana died in 1997.

Locally sourced foliage will be used, including from the gardens of the Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park.

"It's so important to me to know that [Diana's] a part of this", Harry said in the interview.

Meghan Markle may be living a real-life fairy tale engaged to Prince Harry now, but only a few years ago, she was just another actress hustling to make a living.

Last August marked the 20th anniversary of Diana's death and to mark the occasion, Kensington Palace planted a memorial "white" garden, which featured a white and cream colour scheme, as well as some of her favourite flowers including forget-me-nots, white lilies, white roses, tulips, and narcissi.

She cancelled "lunches on short notice" or expected friends "to rework their own schedules to accommodate the busy life of the rising star".

It was reported that Meghan might be teaming her designer wedding dress with Princess Diana's family tiara, the Spencer tiara, depending on whether or not it can be loaned from the exhibition that it is now displayed in - but that isn't the only tribute being paid to Diana on 19th May.

After the wedding, the flowers will be distributed to charities. She describes her as someone who is an open, lovely and generous person - right from the moment they first met. She has also worked closely with Harry and Prince William and Princess Kate on The Royal Foundation, the royals' charitable arm of which Markle will become a patron. The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun.

"Earl Spencer, Princess Diana's brother, gave some forget-me-nots to her when they were younger. I am loving working with them, it is an incredible privilege, and the designs will be a true reflection of them as a couple, with sustainability at the forefront".
