Royal wedding flowers shared out to charities

Kensington Palace has said the floral displays in St George’s Chapel were created using locally sourced foliage, much of which was taken from the gardens and parkland of The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park.
These included branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.
Father Peter-Michael Scott, the hospice’s lead chaplain, felt the flowers were a special gift from the royal couple and noted they had already made several people at the hospice smile.
He said: “It (the flowers and the ceremony) connects with a celebration of love and life and in the midst of all that, this newly married couple have been thinking of others and are demonstrating that by donating to others.
“It is about the energy of love. We are absolutely thrilled by the flowers and wish them (Harry and Meghan) all the best for the future.”
Mrs Clayton said she was 19 when she worked for 49-and-a-half hours on the train of Queen’s wedding dress.
Only half-joking, she recalled: “To a certain extent it was exciting and my dad was over the moon. I could not say anything to anybody or else I could have been prosecuted or something at the end of the day.”
She remembered working on the design, shrouded in secrecy, in Bruton Mews near Sir Norman’s extraordinary salon in Bruton Street, in the heart of London’s West End. She recalled that “people used to try to rent the rooms in the pub opposite to try to see what we were doing.”
The Royal Collection Trust notes that the Queen also requested that in addition to the four national emblems, those of the Dominions of which she was now Queen should also be added to her coronation dress.
Mrs Clayton said she worked on the embroidery for lotus flower of Ceylon, which later became Sri Lanka, which appeared on the coronation dress.
Meghan wore a five metre-long white silk veil at her wedding which included floral detail representing all 53 countries of the Commonwealth.
The bride suggested the design because the Commonwealth will be a central part of the official work that she and Harry are set to carry out.

The fiery sermon of Episcopal cleric Michael Curry, like Markle an American, may have upstaged the whole affair with references to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., slavery and the power of love.

Flowers play vital role for Easter
Easter vigil that starts at 8 p.m. March 31, Pastor Xaxier Pappu said. The flowers will be placed around the altar and in the sanctuary.“I think all the churches have Easter lilies, but the Catholics do it on the vigil services,” Pappu said.“We start the Easter vigil, and the whole church will be dark, all the lights off,” Pappu said. He added the flowers symbolize the resurrection of Jesus Christ.Pappu said the flowers might remain in the church for a few weeks, until they wilt.
