Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Provided a Custom Wreath to Display at Prince Philip’s Funeral
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex provided a sentimental tribute to the late Prince Philip at his funeral today.
BAZAAR.com can confirm that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan contributed a custom wreath that was laid in honor of the Duke of Edinburgh at his funeral service at Windsor Castle today. A card, handwritten by Meghan herself, also accompanied the wreath. While Prince Harry was in attendance for today’s ceremony, Meghan was ultimately not cleared by a doctor to fly at this stage in her pregnancy. Though Meghan could not attend today’s service in person, she is understood to be viewing the funeral from at home today in Montecito, California.
The commemorative wreath was hand-made and designed by Willow Crossley, a florist that the Sussexes have turned to time and time again for special occasions, including as part of their wedding at Frogmore Gardens, their son Archie’s Christening at Windsor Castle, and for the duchess’s launch event for the Hubb Community cookbook at Kensington Palace.
The wreath features an array of locally sourced flowers with sentimental touches meant to honor the Duke of Edinburgh including Bear’s Breeches (the national flower of Greece, Philip’s birthplace) and Sea Holly, to represent the Royal Marines. The arrangement also included Campanula, to symbolize gratitude and everlasting love as well as rosemary, lavender, and roses, to signify remembrance, devotion, and the duke’s June birth month. The Duke of Edinburgh would have celebrated his 100th birthday later this summer.
