Markle had expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony and Waight Keller designed the veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.

Significant time was spent researching the flora of each Commonwealth country, according to Kensington Palace, “and much care was taken by Waight Keller to ensure that every flower was unique.”

Each flower was worked flat, in three dimensions to create a unique and delicate design. The workers spent hundreds of hours meticulously sewing and washing their hands every thirty minutes to keep the tulle and threads pristine.
