The newlywed royals did something incredibly beautiful after their wedding day. They donated all their wedding flowers to the elderly at the St Joseph’s Hospice.

 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, both now formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, decided to donate their wedding flowers. Instead of throwing them out after the ceremony, the couple wanted to brighten up the day of someone else.

They chose the St Joseph’s Hospice as the recipient. The flowers, including white garden roses and forget-me-nots, both of which were favourites of the late Princess Diana. The flowers were arranged into beautiful bouquets and delivered to the elderly.

“Today we got a very special delivery. Beautiful bouquets made from the Royal Wedding flowers which we gave to our patients. A big thank you to Harry and Meghan and florist Philippa Craddock. Our hospice smells and looks gorgeous. Such a lovely gesture.” – St Joseph’s Hospice

Another gesture, one that has become a tradition among the royals, is to place the bride’s bouquet on the grave of unknown war warriors in Westminster Abbey. The grave is a memorial to the soldiers who fought and died during World War I and other military conflicts.

“This is a tradition which was begun by HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, at her marriage to King George VI in memory of her brother Fergus who was killed in 1915 at the Battle of Loos during the First World War,” a press release said.
