Royal Purple Flower Named After Meghan Markle

Part of joining the Royal Family means you get lots of different things named after you. Streets, pubs, drinks and even flowers.

As the newest members of the Royal Family, Meghan Markle, is getting the naming treatment with her first flower.

The Royal Horticultural Society has named a royal purple clematis with pink accents after the Duchess of Sussex.

‘Meghan’ is “an exquisite new large-flowering clematis that will usually offer two flowering seasons each year – the first being the most prolific” around the time of their wedding in May. The second time in early autumn.

The flower will be officially launched at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, so expect a visit from Markle.

Many royals have flowers named after them. There is the ‘Royal Wedding’ clematis, a white flower for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Queen Elizabeth has a pink rose named after her, and Diana, Princess of Wales, has a pink clematis. A violet clematis was dedicated when Prince Louis was born and a pink and green chrysanthemum for Princess Charlotte.

The Georgie Boy daffodil was named for Prince George, and Prince William and Kate were able to see the white and pink orchid created for them when they were in Singapore in 2012.

With the arrival of Baby Sussex in a few months, it can be expected another royal flower will be on the way.

The Duchess of Cambridge also has a display at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The woodland-themed garden will focus on family time and using nature as a way to better mental health.
