Meghan Markle and Prince Harry weren't present at Easter service today to celebrate the holiday with Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

New reports say Markle aims to be "Princess Diana 2.0".

Ms Craddock will use seasonal blooms from around Windsor to decorate the ceremony venue, including white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves. "Where possible, Philippa will use flowers and plants that are in season and blooming naturally in May", Kensington Palace shared.

While all eyes are on Meghan Markle as she gets ready to marry Prince Harry, it turns out this day is one that Markle also dreamed of herself.

Meghan Markle met Prince Harry in 2016. Craddock shared the news on her Instagram account and announced that she was "thrilled" for the opportunity and that "the designs will be a true reflection of them as a couple". Did Prince George demand Harry and Meghan stay home with him for Easter morning?

Of her university days in Northwestern, Illinois, Morton writes about her physical appearance, "Now that she wasn't under the watchful gaze of her mother, she started wearing heavier make-up and experimented with highlighting her hair". Wild and natural, right down to the tree branches (beech, birch, and hornbeam, a species that previously only existed in the pages of Harry Potter) that will apparently be interspersed throughout the flowers.

Graham Dillamore, the head gardener of Kensington Palace's memorial garden from 1984 to 1992 told The Telegraph that Diana was interested in the work he and his team did.

Mr Markle divorced Doria, who went on to become a social worker, when their daughter was six. A new book written by famed Princess Diana biographer Andrew Morton has suggested that Meghan's lead role on the US legal drama Suits eventually led to the demise of her past marriage to Trevor.

"We were theater nerds", he said. "She used to turn her nose up if I ever put red or deep purple flowers", he added.

Markle and Engelson, here in a 2006 file photo, tied the knot on September 10, 2011 in Jamaica, where they had a casual wedding in front of 102 guests.

Thomas Markle, 73, is said to be thrilled about his daughter's engagement to Prince Harry. "The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun", said Craddock.
