The royal wedding flowers that embellished St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday for Meghan Markle wed Prince Harry‘s wedding have been sent to a new home: St. Joseph’s Hospice in London.
The health care facility announced on Facebook on Sunday that the staff had just received the “very special delivery” of “beautiful bouquets made from the #royalwedding flowers.”
Accompanying their announcement was a photo of a patient with her arms full of the greenery.
“A big thank you to Harry and Meghan and florist Philippa Craddock,” St. Joseph’s wrote. “Our hospice smells and looks gorgeous. Such a lovely gesture.”
Harry and Meghan’s flowers carried special significance even before they were donated after this week’s nuptials. Among the different kinds of plants were white garden roses, beloved by the late Princess Diana. (Meghan’s wedding bouquet included a reference to her late mother-in-law as well, featuring forget-me-nots, another Diana favorite.)
The wedding arrangements also included branches of beech, birch and hornbeam as well as foxgloves and peonies.
