New report claims that there was a heated conversation between the Queen and Prince Harry when it came time for Meghan to choose her wedding tiara. The Queen warned Prince Harry over Meghan Markle’s behaviour and attitude before their wedding following a row over the bride’s tiara. Meghan originally wanted a tiara that featured emeralds, according to royal sources, but she was told that the first choice was impossible.

In a new book reporter Robert Jobson reveals Harry told staff before the wedding: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.” Well not in this case!

“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.” At issue, the paper reports, were the potentially problematic origins of the tiara’s jewels. “The provenance of the tiara could not be established,” says the source. “There were concerns it could have come from Russia originally.”

The sources continued: “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.'” Apparently, Her Majesty 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.”

Just five months later, the Queen loaned her granddaughter Princess Eugenie an emerald tiara for her own royal wedding.

The royal insider added: “Meghan can be difficult. “She has very high standards and is used to working in a Hollywood environment.

Meghan opened up about picking her tiara earlier last month as part of her wedding outfit exhibition, and didn’t show any indication that there was drama behind it: “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.”

Harry also spoke about the tiara choice for the recording for the new exhibit: “[It’s] every girl’s dream to be able to try on a tiara and funnily enough, [that was] the one that suited the best. I shouldn’t have really even been there, but [it was] such an incredible loan by my grandmother. It was very sweet.”
