According to Kensington Palace, “Significant time was spent researching the flora of each Commonwealth country and much care was taken by Ms. Waight Keller to ensure that every flower is unique.”
And no detail was spared with each flower sewn by hand - the workers spent hundreds of hours meticulously sewing and washing their hands every thirty minutes to keep the tulle and threads pristine.
There were two other flowers on the veil too - Wintersweet, which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace in front of Nottingham Cottage, and the California Poppy the State flower from Ms. Markle’s place of birth, California. Oh, and at the very front of the veil, crops of wheat are embroidered too, to symbolise love and charity.
Like we said, there are veils and then there are veils.
