Royal wedding flowers are shared out between several charities

Perhaps to confirm their philanthropic spirits, the couple shared out the attractive flowers which graced their royal wedding to different charities. St Joseph's Hospice in Hackney announced on Sunday (20 May) that staff had received the very special delivery.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at St. George's Chapel in Windsor on Saturday.

St Joseph's wrote: "A big thank you to Harry and Meghan and florist Philippa Craddock".

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose the self-taught London floral designer for their nuptials.

Clayton added that she thought the gesture to donate the flowers was "lovely".

Just when we thought we couldn't love them anymore, we discovered that the stunning bouquets which adorned St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle have made a new home at St Joseph's Hospice in London. As a 19-year-old, Clayton, now 89, worked for royal dressmaker Norman Hartnell and helped embroider the wedding dress of Queen Elizabeth II, according to the BBC.

The floral displays "were created using locally sourced foliage, much of which was taken from the gardens and parkland of The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park", PA reports.

'This tradition dates back to the wedding of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's eldest daughter'.

Philippa, who says she is self taught, is the preferred supplier to the V&A, Kensington Palace, Banqueting House and Hampton Court Palace and is also Selfridges' in-store florist, with a Flower Shop in the store's Foodhall. "Working with them has been an absolute pleasure", she said in a statement of her involvement with Meghan and Harry's royal wedding.
