Prince Harry’s Saturday wedding to Meghan Markle was full of subtle tributes to his late mother, Princess Diana. The couple wed more than 20 years after Diana’s sudden death in Paris.
Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, walked down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel holding a small bouquet of flowers that included Diana’s favorite flower, forget-me-nots, picked from a private garden at Kensington Palace, where Harry grew up.
Many saw her incredibly long veil, a lace number including the flowers of all 53 countries in the British Commonwealth, as another nod to Diana, whose train at her 1981 wedding to Prince Charles appeared equally long.
Of course, she already had her engagement ring, which included two diamonds from Diana’s collection.
During the Windsor Castle ceremony, Meghan and Harry picked a hymn that was sung at Diana’s funeral in 1997 ― eliciting a tear from the groom. The hymn, “Guide Me, O Thy Great Redeemer,” was also part of Prince William’s 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton.
