Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s ceremony was filled with some interesting aspects specifically chosen to honor the groom’s late mother, Princess Diana.

As reported by the official website of the Royal family, the bride’s bouquet was designed by florist Philippa Craddock. In order to add a personal touch, Harry handpicked himself some flowers from the private garden at Kensington Palace.

Among them, Harry included Forget-Me-Nots, which were his mother’s favorite flower. It was a clear sign of respect that he and the bride chose for one of the most important days of their lives.

If that wasn’t enough, the couple added another aspect to the ceremony that was also considered as a way to remember Diana: the hymn titled Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer.

Not only that hymn was Diana’s favorite, but also it was played during her funeral more than 21 years ago. When the hymn began playing, Harry appeared to be close to crying in front of the 600 guests who were in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Even though those two aspects were evident ways to pay tribute to Harry’s late mother, they opted for a third one. However, it was so subtle that only those who have a deep knowledge of the history of the Royals could notice it.

The final tribute was done in the official wedding photos released by Kensington Palace two days after the wedding. One of the three showed Harry sitting on a couch while Meghan was resting at his feet and the pageboys and bridesmaids were surrounding them.

A close look at the emerald green couch where Harry was on revealed that it was the same seat where Diana was photographed while holding Harry at his christening in 1984.

In that previous photo, Diana was wearing a blue outfit and holding Harry while Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth were next to them smiling for the photograph. It was a subtle yet wonderful way to honor his mother after 21 years of her passing.
