Speaking about being chosen for the coveted commission of the royal wedding, Craddock said: "I am excited and honored to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle to design and create their wedding flowers". Wild and natural, right down to the tree branches (beech, birch, and hornbeam, a species that previously only existed in the pages of Harry Potter) that will apparently be interspersed throughout the flowers.

Harry and Markle would tie knots at St Georges Chapel at the Windsor Castle on May 19. The couple's guests from their wedding ceremony will enjoy a reception at St. George's Hall, Windsor in the afternoon.

The latest development: the selection of flower arrangements, which will be designed by the London-based florist Philippa Craddock and feature buds in pink and white sourced from the Crown Estate, Windsor Great Parks, and the Royal Parks, as the Kensington Palace official Instagram announced Sunday.

"The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun", she said.

Kensington Palace said the designs will reflect the wild, natural landscapes from which numerous plants will be drawn. "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".

According to the palace, the couple asked Ptak to make a "lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavours of spring" rather than the more traditional fruitcake.

Peonies, as The Tig fans know, are thought to be one of Markle's favorite flowers.

Kensington Palace said that the Royal Parks will also supply some pollinator-friendly plants from their wildflower meadows, which will "provide a great habitat for bees and help to nurture and sustain entire ecosystems by promoting a healthy and biodiverse environment".
