The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, who is expecting her first child soon, has received quite a flowery tribute! The Royal Horticultural Society, the leading gardening charity of the United Kingdom, named a purple-pink clematis flower after her. Not just Meghan, but other royal family members i.e. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Princess Diana and Kate's son Prince Louis were also honoured as the society named several other pretty flowers after them.
"Named after the most recent addition to the royal family (an Prince Harry's bride), 'Meghan' is an exquisite new large-flowering clematis that will usually offer two flowering seasons each year - the first being the most prolific in late spring or early summer (around the time of their wedding), but then again in early autumn. The flowers are a rich and opulent magenta-purple, so they will really make an impact when planted in borders or larger pots," the official statement from Royal Horticultural Society read.

Kate has got a white and purple clematis named after her while a white and pink dahlia has been named after Princess Diana, remembering her beauty. A gorgeous pink rose has been named after Queen Elizabeth.
As their baby arrives, Meghan and husband Prince Harry are reportedly planning to shift their household, following fallouts within the family. “Now they have their own families, they no longer rely on each other as before. They have become different people with different outlooks on life," a source told news.com.au.
