Britain’s Prince Harry and his American fiancée, Meghan Markle, have chosen a London florist beloved of the fashion industry to arrange the flower decorations for their royal wedding in late spring, Kensington Palace said Sunday.

Philippa Craddock, whose client list includes designer Alexander McQueen and British Vogue magazine, will use seasonal blooms from around Windsor to decorate the ceremony venue, including white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.


The May 19 wedding of Queen Elizabeth’s grandson, fifth in line to the throne, and Markle, star of the U.S. TV legal drama “Suits,” will be at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
