U.S. & World

LONDON, England (WCMH) – After Saturday’s royal wedding ceremony was over, the flowers didn’t go to waste.

Some of the flowers from the wedding between Price Harry and Meghan Markle were made into bouquets that were delivered to hospice patients and women’s refuges around London.

“Our hospice smells and looks gorgeous. Such a lovely gesture,” said St. Joseph’s Hospice on Facebook.

According to florist Philippa Craddock, the donated flowers came from the two entrance designs at St. George’s Chapel.

One patient, Pauline Clayton was particularly touched by the gesture. Clayton used to work for royal dressmaker Norman Hartnell and helped make many of Queen Elizabeth’s dresses, Today reported,

“With my royal connections it’s such a lovely coincidence to be at St. Joseph’s and receive these wedding flowers,” Clayton, 89, said, according a press release from the hospice. “They are beautiful and very special.”
