Meghan Markle news: Why did the Queen warn Harry over Meghan’s behaviour before wedding?

Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family when she married Prince Harry in May this year. But why did the Queen warn Prince Harry over Meghan’s behaviour before the royal wedding?

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex exchanged vows at St George’s Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle, on May 19. Meghan walked down the aisle wearing Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, which was made in 1932. The tiara was a loan from the Queen, but the monarch and her grandson Prince Harry allegedly exchanged tense words before the headpiece was chosen.

Meghan originally wanted to wear a tiara that featured emeralds, according to The Sun.

But she was apparently left unhappy when she was told this was “impossible”, as nobody knew the provenance of the gems, amid fears the emeralds were Russian at a time of heightened tension between London and Moscow.

A 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’.”

Reporter Robert Jobson revealed in his new book that Harry told staff before the wedding: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”

But this attitude did not go down well with the Queen, who then reportedly warned the prince over Meghan’s behaviour.

The royal insider told to the Sun: “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.”

However, Meghan revealed a different version of events about how she chose her tiara when she gave an interview as part of her wedding outfit exhibition.

She 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.”
