The florist said he was on “cloud nine” after working at the royal wedding in 2018.

Speaking on This Morning, he told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that it had been “the cherry on the cake of the last 32 years”.

Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Prince Pavlos of Greece married on 1 July 1995 at St Sophia’s Cathedral in London in front of 450 guests.

A further 850 guests watched via satellite at Hampton Court Palace, where the reception was held.

Notable attendees included the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles.

Meanwhile, after the coronavirus crisis forced Princess Beatrice to postpone her wedding, Beatrice and Eugenie have been undertaking royal duties in lockdown.

Most recently the sisters took part in a zoom call with young people impacted by cancer.

During the call, they spoke with young people who are helped by the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The princesses are honorary patrons of Teenage Cancer Trust and spoke to six young people on the challenges they face each day which have been magnified due to lockdown.

Lakita Neille, who is supported by the Teenage Cancer Trust spoke of the difficulty in waiting when it comes to cancer and how lockdown has exacerbated that feeling.

She said: “When you have cancer you are constantly waiting, waiting for diagnosis, waiting for treatment, waiting for results, waiting for it all to end so life can get back to normal.

“Then when it’s all over, to be told you have to shield for an amount of time and can’t see the people you love and want around you again, that’s another chunk of time when you can’t do the things you’ve been waiting to do, it’s really difficult.”
