Meghan Markle wanted St George's Chapel to be sprayed with air fresheners before wedding, but Queen rejected demand
Following Meghan Markle's request, the staff was left shocked because the chapel happens to be the regular place of worship for the Queen and it even contains the Royal Vault.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's fairytale wedding might have gone off without a hitch, but it has recently been revealed that the Duchess of Sussex didn't like the musty odor in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle ahead of her wedding day to Prince Harry, and sources claim that she wanted air fresheners to be put inside before the guests could arrive.
After Markle made her request, the staff was left shocked because the chapel happens to be the regular place of worship for the Queen and it even contains the Royal Vault. "Apparently Meghan didn't like the smell of the chapel, which as you would expect, is a little musty. It's not unpleasant at all though. Meghan wanted staff to go around with these atomizers, like spritzer guns, and spray the chapel with scent before anyone arrived," revealed a royal source to DailyMail.
The same source added that the Buckingham Palace did not accept Markle's request to use the atomizers. "Royal Household staff stepped in and told her office politely, but firmly, that this was the Queen’s Chapel and it simply wasn’t appropriate. This is a place that has held royal weddings, funerals and even contains the Royal Vault. I don’t believe a request of that nature had been made before," the source said.
Daily Mail also reported that there have been suggestions that Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex can be difficult and 'dictatorial' and might not be that popular with the household staff. Two sources who spoke to DailyMail regarding the issue of the atomizers also revealed that though they were surprised by the request, it did not cause any fall out between the two households. "The two households worked very well together. I don't believe they [the atomizers] caused concern," said the second source.
The news about the atomizers come after the rumors that state there is a rift between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton and also the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed that there were moving to Windsor to raise their baby. Sources said that she was the reason for the frosty relationship between Prince Harry and Prince William.
