The Queen stepped in after the couple were unhappy at being told “difficult” Meghan’s first choice, which featured emeralds, was off limits. And it was just due to uncertainty over its origin, The Sun reports.
The Duchess of Sussex eventually wore a diamond and platinum headpiece.
It was selected by the Queen despite Harry telling staff before the big day: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets”. It was revealed by a new book by a reporter, Richard Jobson.
A royal insider said: “The new royal bride 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. And so, it was off limits”.

The royal source also added:-
“The Queen also questioned why the Duchess of Sussex needed a veil for the wedding, given it was to be her second marriage”.

“The message from Her Majesty was very much that 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 it after visiting Buckingham Palace with Harry.
It has also emerged that Meghan and Kate Middleton 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 the staff. A spokesman for Meghan and Harry declined to comment at all.
