A source claims Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth had a heated exchange before the Royal Wedding.
According to a new report by The Sun, the Duchess of Sussex wanted to wear a tiara with emeralds in it. But instead, she wore the Queen Mary Diamond bandeau.
“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,” a source told the newspaper.
The source goes on to say that it led “a very heated exchange” — prompting the Queen to speak with Prince Harry.
The Sun reports the issue is the problematic origins of the tiara’s jewels. “The provenance of the tiara could not be established,” added the source. “There were concerns it could have come from Russia originally.”
