It’s no secret that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s 2018 royal wedding was filled with drama, but behind closed doors, there was even more chaos unfolding after the future groom’s plan to surprise the bride-to-be fell apart.

When Harry proposed to Meghan in 2017, the couple immediately began planning for their walk down the aisle. Ahead of their big day, the Duke of Sussex offered to help his wife pick out a floral arrangement for her bridal bouquet.

According to the NZ Herald, Prince Harry planned to surprise Meghan by picking out an array of flowers from their garden that would include a sprig of myrtle and Princess Diana’s favorite flowers forget-me-nots.

Unfortunately, a few weeks before their wedding, the UK was hit with a snowstorm that was particularly harsh on plant life. The storm, which became known as, the “Beast from the East” destroyed a majority of the flowers in the couple’s garden.

“We didn’t have as many flowers in our little garden as we had hoped for because I think it snowed at Easter. That kind of ruined the whole thing,” Prince Harry explained.

Luckily, Harry was still able to find a few flowers that fit perfectly into Meghan’s bouquet. Although he believes the storm ruined his plans, Meghan was thrilled about the sweet gesture.

“What was really special, I think, was that the morning of the wedding Harry went in and he picked some flowers to go into my bouquet which was really beautiful and something that makes it sentimental and really meaningful,” she shared.

Meghan and Prince Harry were married on May 19, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple, who celebrated their one year anniversary on Sunday, are now parents to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
