The Duchess of Sussex has sent her bouquet to Westminster Abbey

It is tradition in the Royal Family to lay the bride’s bouquet on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, located in Westminster Abbey. As the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex happened in Windsor, Her Royal Highness sent hers to the Abbey to respect the tradition instated by Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother on her wedding day.

WESTMINSTER ABBEY – The Duchess of Sussex has sent the bouquet she carried during her wedding ceremony at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, to Westminster Abbey to rest on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

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.

The bouquet was designed by florist Philippa Craddock and comprises sweet pea forget-me-not, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine, astrantia and myrtle.

The tradition of carrying myrtle begun after Queen Victoria was given a nosegay containing myrtle by Prince Albert’s grandmother during a visit to Gotha in Germany. In the same year, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Osborne House as a family retreat, and a sprig from the posy was planted against the terrace walls, where it continues to thrive today.

The myrtle was first carried by Queen Victoria eldest daughter, Princess Victoria, when she married in 1858, and was used to signify the traditional innocence of a bride.

The Warrior’s Grave stands as a remarkable tribute both to the fallen of the First World War and to all those who have died since in international military conflict. In 1920, the Reverend David Railton, a First World War army padre, suggested that an unknown soldier from the battlefield should be brought back to Britain for burial as a representative for all who had died. The grave remains a focus for pilgrimage and a powerful symbol, known across the world, of the sacrifice, suffering and bravery brought by war. It is the only grave or memorial in the Abbey which is never walked over.

Congratulations, The Duke & Duchess of Sussex are married !

It’s official ! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are officially husband and wife ! Earlier today, the Duchess was seen leaving Cliveden House with her mother to go to St. George’s Chapel, where her future husband awaited.

We will see the couple tonight as they depart for Frogmore House ! Expect many photos in the upcoming hours 🙂

Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress has been designed by the
acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year
became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.

Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.

The veil is held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entre brooch dating from 1893.
