In the weeks leading up to Meghan Markle's May 19 wedding to Prince Harry, details of their big day have leaked bit by bit. So far we know that the event is expected to cost almost $45 million (and bring an estimated $680 million into the British economy), the flavor of wedding cake, and the gorgeous venues where the ceremony and reception will be held. On Sunday, another piece of the puzzle slipped into place: Kensington Palace officially announced the wedding florist for the couple's big day. Her name? Philippa Craddock-and her designs are stunning.

Craddock, known as the "Queen of London florists," will create the floral displays at the couple's St. George's Chapel ceremony as well as for the reception later. She's no stranger to big names, either: Craddock's website lists Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Hermes, and Jo Malone as the self-taught florist's clients.

Craddock, who started her floristry business in 2009, prefers to "use seasonal flowers and greenery," according to her website. And per Kensington Palace, the chapel and reception will be adorned with flowers and other foliage from The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park, like beech, birch, white garden roses, peonies (allegedly Markle's favorite flower), and foxgloves.

"I am thrilled to share with you that we have been asked by Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle to create their wedding flowers in May," Craddock wrote as she shared the exciting news on Instagram. "I am loving working with them, it is an incredible privilege, and the designs will be a true reflection of them as a couple, with sustainability at the forefront."

The couple will also use flowers that are pollinator friendly to provide a safe habitat for bees, a species at risk of extinction.

While what the actual arrangements are TBD, you can get a good idea of how gorgeous Craddock's designs are by scrolling through her Instagram. Check it out below:

Markle and Prince Harry happen to be following in the footsteps of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who also used locally sourced plants for their April 29, 2011 nuptials: Westminster Abbey was lined with maple trees and other spring flowers from the Windsor Castle gardens, like rhododendrons, wisteria, and lilac.

Gorgeous artistry, bee-friendly, and locally sourced? Sounds like the perfect trifecta for a beautiful day.

Luckily for The Daily Show's Trevor Noah, his standup date in London overlapped with the royal wedding. This gave the Johannesburg-born comedian plenty of material to work with, and his take on racial and social implications of the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was spot on - especially since he probably wrote most of the jokes that day. Noah delivered an extended explanation of how the wedding would have gone if it was "a real black wedding," which included an impression of a Nigerian uncle who would have ridden in the carriage with the couple, reminding them he paid for it.
