Kate and William left handwritten notes

Meghan was unable to attend the Duke’s funeral earlier last year as she was in the final stages of her pregnancy with Lilibet, but she made sure to pay a very personal tribute to the QueenThe Duchess’s husband with the note card on his funeral wreath which featured the Duchess’ beautiful calligraphy skills.

Harry and Meghan’s note card for Prince Philip was written by the Duchess

Prince Harry and Meghan specifically requested that the crown include the acanthus mollis (bear breeches), the national flower of Greece to represent Prince Philip’s heritage and the eryngium (sea holly) to represent the Royals Marines. The wreath also featured a bellflower to represent gratitude and undying love, rosemary to signify remembrance, lavender for devotion and roses in honor of June being Philip’s birth month.

Harry and Meghan commissioned one of their favorite florists to make and design the wreath – Willow Crossley, who also made the floral arrangements for the couple’s wedding reception at Frogmore Gardens in 2018, their son Archie’s christening in 2019 and the launch event for the Hubb Community Cookbook at Kensington Palace.

The couple’s colorful wreath was laid at the service

The colorful crown certainly stood out among the others filed, which consisted of several stunning white arrangements. White is a traditional color used for flowers at funerals; the queen’s own bouquetwhich was laid on her husband’s coffin, included white lilies, small white roses, white freesia, white wax flower, white sweet peas and jasmine.

The Queen’s poignant selection has been the subject of much thought, each with a special meaning as a tribute to her husband, Prince Philip, and their 73-year marriage.

The service was held at St George’s Chapel in Windsor

White lilies are often seen at weddings and funerals as they represent rebirth, while the white rose is a sign of respect or remembrance. Jasmine, on the other hand, is a symbol of purity, and sweet peas represent a departure or a thank you. White waxflowers symbolize lasting love or love that stands the test of time and hardship.

The The Prince and Princess of Wales’ final special message to the Queen could be seen adorned with their personal monograms on both crowns and made up of some of Her Majesty’s favorite flowers, and they were nestled close to where the Imperial Crown was before it was removed from the coffin.
