The veil was a very important aspect for Markle, who expressed her desire of having the 53 countries of the Commonwealth represented. To meet her wish, the veil was designed with the distinctive flora of each country.

The reason why Meghan, now known as Duchess of Sussex, wanted the 53 countries on the veil was to be able to express her gratitude for being able to support the efforts of the Commonwealth; a decision bound to be praised and appreciated.
