Royal Wedding: Has the colour scheme of the day been revealed by a bouquet of flowers

Meghan Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, arrived at Windsor Castle for their wedding rehearsal today.

While many of the details of the Royal Wedding have already been shared, one thing that has not been confirmed is the colour scheme.

But a major clue has been revealed today – although not by the bride and groom themselves.

A box of flowers has been seen being carried out of a car taking Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall to a waiting helicopter.

The couple were making their way to an official visit in Staffordshire.

The bouquet is a riot of white, yellow and green.

While white is traditional for brides, yellow is more unusual, and could be one the colours of the day.

However, as the flowers were with Charles and Camilla, not Meghan and Harry, they may have just been a gift from a well-wisher.

In fact, even a senior gardener has no idea what Meghan has chosen for the floral displays this Saturday.

The Royal Parks Nursery manager Mike Jones has provided white Mayflower and dusky cranesbill geraniums to official florist Philippa Craddock.

But he has no idea on further designs. He said: “We don’t know where they’re going to be, so we’ll be eagerly looking out ourselves to see where they are.”

Asked if he felt under pressure, the 58-year-old said: “We do, because we really want it to be the best we can possibly do.

It’s showcasing not only our growing of plants but The Royal Parks in general.”

The bride’s bouquet is one of the most anticipated elements of a wedding, and royal nuptials are no exception.

Each royal wedding bouquet since Queen Victoria contains myrtle from her garden to symbolise love in marriage.

Royal Wedding: The flowers were with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

Kate Middleton chose a simple and elegant seasonal bouquet of lily of the valley of her April wedding to Prince William in 2011.

The small bridal bouquet was created by Shane Connolly and featured British home-grown flowers including some that were cut from the royal estates.

Westminster Abbey was filled with hornbeams and field maple trees to create a fresh spring atmosphere for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding ceremony – the idea being that living trees could be replanted.

The Queen carried a bouquet of orchids when she married Prince Philip in 1947. The happy couple filled Westminster Abbey with white lilies, chrysanthemums, carnations, roses and ivy, and even decorated their 9ft tall wedding cake at Buckingham Palace with fresh flowers.

Her bouquet famously went missing before she was able to take photographs on the day, meaning the day had to be recreated with the bouquet later.
