Megan Markle Effect

Megan Markle Wedding Flower BouquetWith the introduction of Megan Markle to the royal family, so too came a trend towards to natural, simple beauty. More than 45 million tuned in to see Prince Harry marry his gorgeous American bride. All eyes were on Megan as she entered St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Just as her sister in law, the Duchess of Cambridge, had the world waiting to see what she would wear, Megan did not disappoint! With a minimal make up, and relaxed hair styling, her flower bouquet stood out for its beauty, meaning and simplicity. Featuring sweet pea, lily of the valley, jasmine, astilbe and astrantia, the bouquet was handpicked by Prince Harry in the grounds of Buckingham Palace. As is royal tradition the bouquet also features sprigs of myrtle. The custom dates back to the wedding of Queen Victoria's and Prince Albert's eldest daughter, Princess Victoria. Myrtle symbolises hope and love making it the perfect choice for any bride! All tied together with a natural, raw silk ribbon.
