Meghan Markle “did her part” for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral by sending a handwritten note and a wreath with special meaning behind it, a friend said.
Doctors have advised the Duchess of Sussex against traveling to the UK to attend the funeral as she is heavily pregnant.

Instead, she watched the moving service on a live video of the Sussexes’ house in Los Angeles with their son Archie.

Omid Scobie, a friend of the Sussexes, reportedly said on ABC’s The HeirPod podcast that Meghan had “done her part” by sending the hand-made crown in tribute to Philip.

He said he believed everyone would be happy with the contribution they received and that everyone in the family had been involved in their own way this week, The Sun reports.

“We also saw signs of those who couldn’t attend,” he said.

“Of course, the Sussexes were represented in full at the funeral.

“A wreath was provided by Harry and Meghan and laid for the Duke of Edinburgh which was handmade by a florist they had used for Archie’s christening at Windsor Castle, and for the evening reception at Frogmore Gardens – again something that took place in Windsor. ”

A handwritten note from Meghan Markle was placed on a wreath during Prince Philip’s funeral.

Meghan and Harry have personally chosen the locally sourced flowers for their wreath, and each of the beautiful flowers has special meaning.

It includes Acanthus mollis (bear breeches), which is the national flower of Greece, and Eryngium (Sea Holly), in a nod to Philip’s much-loved Royal Marines.

The wreath also includes the bellflower for gratitude and everlasting love, rosemary to signify remembrance, lavender for devotion, and roses in honor of June being Philip’s birth month.
