White English garden flowers adorn St George’s Chapel

White garden roses, peonies and foxgloves fill the church as branches of beech, birch and hornbeam also feature in the arrangements.

St George’s Chapel has been adorned with floral displays ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot.

The first pictures from inside the historic building show foliage, white peonies, white garden roses and other white blooms adorning the front of the organ loft, towering above the seats.

A central arch will serve to frame the royal couple as a congregation of family, friends and well-wishers watch them take their vows.

Two large arrangements also sit either side of the High Altar in the Windsor Castle chapel.

The display, which also features foxgloves with branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, also extends to outside the chapel, lining the West Steps and surrounding the West Door through which Meghan will enter the church.

The display has been carefully crafted by floral designer Philippa Craddock.
