[dropcap]D[/dropcap]uchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, who married Prince Harry on May 19, already clashed with the Queen, twice before the wedding and once with the Duchess of Cambridge over the treatment of royal staff, according to a report in the Sun.
The Queen warned Prince Harry over Meghan Markle’s behaviour and attitude before their wedding following a row over the bride’s tiara.
Reportedly, Meghan had picked up a tiara with emeralds but she was told that it was impossible for her to wear it.
A new book by reporter Robert Jobson reveals Harry told staff before the wedding: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”
A well-placed royal insider said: “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. “The provenance of the tiara could not be established. There were concerns it could have come from Russia originally. There was a very heated exchange that prompted the Queen to speak to Harry. She said, ‘Meghan cannot have whatever she wants. She gets what tiara she’s given by me’,” the source said
The Queen also questioned why Meghan needed a veil for the wedding, given it was to be her second marriage. “The message from the Queen was very much Meghan needed to think about how she speaks to staff members and be careful to follow family protocols.”
In an interview, Meghan said she chose the tiara she did wear after visiting Buckingham Palace with Harry, 34, to see the Queen and view the “options”.
It has also emerged Meghan and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, have clashed over the treatment of staff.
The royal insider added: “Meghan can be difficult. She has very high standards and is used to working in a Hollywood environment. However, there’s a different degree of respect in the royal household and Kate has always been very careful about how she has acted around staff.”
A spokesman for Meghan and Harry declined to comment.
Meanwhile, Robert Jobson’s book, Charles at 70, said the Queen and Meg have bonded over a love of dogs.
Meghan married Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, after which she was given the title of Duchess of Sussex by The Queen.
