The Queen apparently warned Prince Harry of 'difficult' Meghan's tiara choice ahead of royal wedding
Reports say that the monarch also questioned Meghan's choice to wear a veil since it was her second wedding, after all
A new explosive report claims that the Queen apparently had an exchange of words with Prince Harry over his 'difficult' bride Meghan Markle's choice of wedding tiara. Earlier, it had been said how Harry went around the Palace before his wedding saying, "What Meghan wants, Meghan gets," according to a book by reporter Robert Jobson.
According to reports, Meghan was initially supposed to wear a wedding tiara featuring emeralds, but Prince Harry "hit the roof" when the plan was canceled over concerns that the accessory might have come from Russia. It was then that the Queen stepped in, and according to a royal insider, told Harry, "She gets what tiara she's given by me."
The inside source revealed, "Meghan had her heart set on this tiara with emeralds and Prince Harry hit the roof when they were told it was impossible for her to wear it." However, the provenance of the tiara couldn't be established, even though there were multiple concerns about it coming from Russia.
The royal insider further said that the Queen, after having "a very heated exchange" with the staff members, told Prince Harry: "Meghan cannot have whatever she wants. She gets what tiara she's given by me." Reports say that the monarch also questioned Meghan's choice to wear a veil since it was her second wedding, after all. "The message from the Queen was very much that Meghan needed to think about how she speaks to staff members and be careful to follow family protocols," the source said.
The same insider then added that the Duchess of Sussex, who is "used to working in a Hollywood environment", can sometimes be "difficult". As per reports, Meghan also clashed with Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, over how staff are treated in the Palace, said the source. In the end, as we all know, Meghan wore Queen Mary's diamond and platinum bandeau tiara on her wedding day. She had reportedly picked out the key wedding accessory from the Queen's collection during a visit to Buckingham Palace with Prince Harry.
Speaking about the tiara she wore, Meghan said: "When it came to the tiara on the day, I was very fortunate to be able to choose this gorgeous art deco style bandeau tiara. Harry and I had gone to Buckingham Palace to meet with Her Majesty The Queen to select one of the options that were there, which was an incredibly surreal day as you can imagine. And that was the one that, I think, as we tried them on, stood out."
She added: "I think it was just perfect because it was so clean and simple — and also to that point, an extension of what Clare [Waight Keller] and I had been trying to do with the dress which was have something that could be so incredibly timeless but still feel modern."
Harry joked in the commentary: "Every girl's dream to be able to try on a tiara, and, funnily enough, the one that suited the best, the one that looked the best on you without question, I shouldn't have really even been there, but such an incredible loan by my grandmother, it was very sweet."
