Royal wedding flowers shared out to charities
Queen's wedding and coronation outfits.
Floral designer Phillippa Craddock directed a team, including florists from St George's Chapel and Buckingham Palace, to create the wedding displays at St George's Chapel and for St George's Hall in Windsor.

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.

Royal Wedding Flowers Turned Into Bouquets For Hospice Patients
St. George’s Chapel and St. George’s Hall in Windsor on May 19, were designed by Philippa Craddock and a team of florists from Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
The bouquets were made up of foxgloves, peonies, and white garden roses, many of which were sourced from the gardens and parkland of the royal-owned Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park.
Kensington Palace confirmed that the flowers were donated to a number of charities and hospices. One recipient was St. Joseph’s in Hackney, east London. “To see the faces of the patients when they received the flowers was just fantastic,” hospice spokeswoman Claire Learner told CNN.
St Joseph’s has a long history of royal connections, having been visited by Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana and, most recently, Prince Edward, who toured the grounds in 2015, the hospice said.
The ties to the royal family do not stop there. Pauline Clayton, an 89-year-old patient, once worked as an embroideress to Norman Hartnell, one of the Queen’s dressmakers.
Clayton revealed that when she was 19, she worked for almost 50 hours on the train of the Queen’s own wedding dress, according to the UK’s Press Association.
Clayton added that she thought the gesture to donate the flowers was “lovely.”

Queen Victoria and the Orange Blossom Flower
Queen’s family. Queen Victoria’s ‘going away’ bonnet, which she wore for the journey from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle for her honeymoon, contained orange sprigs and is still preserved. Queen Victoria’s wedding dress had itself been trimmed on the bodice with “orange-flower-blossoms”, as was reported in The Times.Her second daughter, Princess Alice, also wore a little bonnet trimmed with orange blossoms for her ‘going away’ outfit at Osborne, following her marriage to Prince Ludwig of Hesse in 1862. Princess Beatrice, the Queen’s youngest daughter, wore orange blossom as a trimming on her bridal gown, on her wedding to Prince Henry of Battenberg in 1885. This was completed by white heather, presumably from the Scottish Highlands, and of course, the by now obligatory myrtle. Waxen, orange flowers featured in the bridal wreath worn by Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863, a cutting of which was preserved by Queen Victoria in an envelope, which she autographed. Nor was this limited to Queen Victoria’s family of course – the bridal dress of Queen Marie Christine of Spain, also featured artificial orange blossoms, a sprig of which have been preserved in a gold box from her wedding day in 1879.Queen Victoria, wearing her simple wreath of orange blossom, and Prince Albert on their Wedding Day, 1840 (By Engraved by S Reynolds after F Lock [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons)Orange blossom, like the myrtle, grew at Osborne House, the Royal Family’s private retreat on the Isle of Wight. The flowers, which Queen Victoria loved, were at their most fragrant in summer when the Royal Family preferred to stay there; the inner terrace where the Queen liked to breakfast, contained a pergola, heavy with orange blossoms and roses. Osborne’s rooms themselves includ... (Royal Central (blog))
