As Ok! readers know, there was a ton of drama leading up to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s nuptials in May, including her dad Thomas bailing on the wedding at the last minute. But apparently there was even more drama behind the scenes — involving Meghan’s tiara! Read on for the latest.
According to People, Meghan was all set for her walk down the aisle and had chosen a gorgeous tiara to cap off her perfect look.
That is, until Queen Elizabeth found out about this and quickly put the kibosh on that particular item of jewelry. As a result, the Duchess 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 Sun.
There was reportedly “a very heated exchange” that unfortunately didn’t change the outcome for Meghan, even after Harry flipped out about it.
In addition, the Queen was really concerned about the origins of Meghan’s choice tiara. “The provenance of the tiara could not be established,” the insider continued. “There were concerns it could have come from Russia originally.”
