More like six or seven Instagram posts featuring peonies. One cryptically thanked someone else for giving them to her (that's the one we now know must have been a message to Harry early in their dating), but she'd previously posted about how she treated herself every week or so to a bouquet of flowers, and that the workers at the shop where she bought them sometimes set peonies aside for her because they knew they were her favorites.

Ah...yeah, I am not a big flower person, I do like yellow roses but really I prefer other flowers. Still if the DH sends me flowers I love them whatever they are because he took time to send them!

I didn't know how close Meghan and Harry were with the Mulroneys, but it appears that they are quite close with one another. I just thought it would be a nice idea to have a child of one of the Suits actors there.

But yes, the myrtle tradition is likely to continue on.


I guess if Meghan wants a pink rose in her bouquet she may choose one of the queen's roses above. But I don't see her going out of her way to choose those specific ones. A rose in itself would be a nice nod to the queen and country.
They are her favorites. She spoke about it and she has many pictures with them.

If she did have one it will likely be Sarah's daughter. They are close and she used to post about her daughter a bit. I think the main issue would be if the parents are comfortable with the high level of attention but I think there is a greater chance her goddaughters will be in it more especially Ivy.

Sometimes its the people you are the closest to that are your family. Blood may be thicker than water but love embraces all.

My husband and I have our family Christmas get togethers and then we get together and open gifts with a large family that we go to church with. We love our family but we actually enjoy our get together with our friends more than the ones with our family.

You girls who get sent flowers by your husbands are lucky. We are celebrating our 20th anniversary next year, and mine has never sent me flowers. Not that I am a real flower person anyway.

I wonder how big Meghan's bouquet will be. Large one seem to have gone out of fashion. Also it could be a teardrop shape or just a hand-tied posy which seems to be more trendy nowadays. (I had a teardrop bouquet when I got married but for our vow renewal I'm having a hand-tied posy, already got it as it's silk flowers).

She has mentioned them 3 times that I can find. Yes, she indeed seems to love them. Whether they are her 'favorite' stands to be seen. She also likes sweet peas, roses and tulips it seems. We will have to wait and see what she chooses for her boquet.

We usually stay with my mum for a couple of nights just before Christmas, then on Christmas itself it is just me, my husband and our pet rats. This year I had to go to my mum's alone as hubby just started a new job in retail and couldn't get time off. I saw my mum and her fella and on Xmas Eve my sister came over so I was able to give her our presents, then I got home Christmas Eve. I like actual Christmas to be just us and our pets, like quiet holidays.

Princess Squrirel-Like you we're celebrating our 20th anniversary so let me extend my congratulations to you and your spouse.
In 1998 the teardrop shape was still in style here in the U.S. but the hand tied bouquets were just coming into fashion. Since my sister-in-law provide all of the flowers as our wedding gift, I opted for her suggestion of the hand tied style. My original bouquet went to a family member's grave, but she created a second bouquet for me to keep. I dried it and it lasted for years until the day my two cats knocked it off the dresser and it fell apart. Perhaps I should have opted for silk!

Congratulations to you both too! You should consider renewing your vows too maybe. I am inviting mostly different guests to the renewal. My sister didn't come to the wedding, my mum's fella wasn't with her then, my closest friends we didn't know then, and some of my family members I didn't invite, like my aunt, who I knew would never travel down to London. So we are doing the renewal at the registry office where my mum lives. I know the silver anniversary might be considered by some to be a more suitable occasion to renew, but my aunt will be 83 and my mum's fella nearly 80 next year, and I don't want to risk them not being around. Oh and also my sister-in-law is bringing her husband to the renewal who wasn't married to her at the time of our wedding.

Actually 13 posts in 2016 featuring peonies.

Including one with the caption "extra special thanks to Anna at my neighborhood flower shop for finding peonies for me because she knows how much I love them!!!"

So I think it's fair to say that people who suspect her favourite flowers are peonies aren't out in left field.

Though I don't think, I could be wrong, that he may wear them at the wedding.
That would make for a good look with an ivory-or awhite wedding gown.

When thinking of Meghan's bridal bouquet, only one flower came to mind that I thought would be very fitting. I'd like to see Forget-Me-Nots in it. Those flowers have special meaning for Harry as its what Sentebale means. They were used extensively in the entry Harry worked on for the Chelsea Flower Show one year.

Do the royal family have a specific florist that they always use?

The other 11 posts included roses, tulips, daisies and plenty of other flowers. 2 specifically mention peonies

I will say 'yes they are her absolute favorite flowers' because I grow tired of people trying to convince me they know her personally and know they are her favorite. So by all means you win, I bow down, hopefully this tiresome need to prove me wrong can end.

Forget me nots would indeed be a nice touch.

They are a beautiful color as well and would look fantastic in a bouquet.

Meghan has definitely posted a lot of peonies on her IG. She might have posted other flowers, but peonies were quite frequent and definitely consistent.
