Meghan Markle’s wedding bouquet was supposed to be bigger, but some unseasonably cold weather “ruined” Harry’s plan to pick the flowers himself.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle share a kiss at the royal wedding.
Per Vanity Fair, in an interview for the 2018 Windsor Castle exhibit “A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” Meghan revealed that Harry had planned to pick flowers for her wedding bouquet from their private garden at Kensington Palace, but was thwarted by a spring cold snap.
“We didn’t have as many flowers in our little garden as we had hoped for because I think it snowed at Easter! That kind of ruined the whole thing!” Harry said.
The small bouquet was still significant in other ways. A statement from Kensington Palace shared that the bouquet included forget-me-nots, which were Diana’s favorite flower.
“The couple specifically chose them to be included in Ms. Markle’s bouquet to honor the memory of the late Princess on this special day,” the statement read.
