Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's picture-perfect wedding didn't go exactly to plan.

The parents-to-be gave an interview to promote the Windsor Castle exhibit A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, explaining that Meghan's bouquet wasn't as lush as they'd hoped it would be.

Meghan explained she and Harry had planted flowers in their garden at Kensington Palace, with the idea they'd be in full bloom in time for the wedding.

“We have a very small garden here that we had been planting things in the fall ... and what was really special, I think, was that the morning of the wedding Harry went in and he picked some flowers to go into my bouquet, which was really beautiful and something that makes it sentimental and really meaningful.

Harry interjected, explaining that a cold snap squashed his plans for a lavish home-grown bouquet:

“We didn’t have as many flowers in our little garden as we had hoped for because I think it snowed at Easter! That kind of ruined the whole thing!” 

Her bouquet on the day did feature some of her home-grown blooms, which were mixed with sweet pea, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia.

Meghan also revealed she was with Harry and grandmother-in-law Queen Elizabeth II when she chose her wedding tiara, and it only took one meeting with Givenchy designer Clare Waight Keller to realise she was 'the one' to make her stunning wedding gown.

The A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex exhibition is currently showing at Windsor Castle, closing January 6, 2019.
