    On Sunday, Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry of Britain and Meghan Markle, his American fiancee, have picked a London florist that is well-loved by the fashion industry to arrange the flower decorations for their wedding that is scheduled in late spring.

    The client list of Philippa Craddock includes British Vogue magazine and designer Alexander McQueen. He is said to use seasonal blooms from around Windsor to decorate the venue of the ceremony. The flowers will include peonies, foxgloves, and white garden roses.

    The wedding of the grandson of Queen Elizabeth is scheduled this coming 19th of May. He is the fifth-in-line to the throne. His wedding to the star of the hit TV legal drama in the United States called “Suits” will be held at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

    The florist will also use branches of birch, hornbeam, and beech from the surrounding parkland and the couple themselves has helped in choosing the foliage.

    Craddock stated: “Working with them has been an absolute pleasure.

    “The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun.”

    He added: “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.”

    The flowers will be distributed to charities after the wedding.

    Harry is 33 years old, and Markle is 36. They have invited approximately 600 guests to their wedding, even though the names of the guests are still kept in secret.

    Over 2,500 members of the public and figures from the charities that the couple support are invited to see the arrivals of the bride and groom and their guests, and to watch them depart on a carriage procession that will go around Windsor following the ceremony.
