The Queen ‘scolded Prince Harry for being rude about closest aide during Meghan Markle tiara row’


THE QUEEN reportedly scolded Prince Harry for being rude about her closest aide during a row over Meghan Markle’s wedding tiara.

Harry was furious at the Queen’s dresser Angela Kelly after she was unable to meet Meghan’s demand to travel to Buckingham Palace to try on a tiara she wanted to wear at her wedding in May 2018.

The Prince used offensive language about Ms Kelly after being told the protocol required an appointment to be made to access the Queen’s jewels, the Mail on Sunday reported.

He reportedly pressured courtiers into persuading Ms Kelly to travel to London and get the tiara out of a locked cupboard.

Ms Kelly heard what Harry had said about her and told the Queen.

Harry was then called to a private meeting with his grandmother, a royal source said.

“He was put firmly in his place. He had been downright rude,” the source told the Mail.

A Royal Family spokeswoman refused to comment when contacted by HOAR Online.


According to new tell-all biography Finding Freedom, Harry felt Ms Kelly dragged her feet in helping Meghan choose a tiara for their wedding day.

Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, who wrote the book, said Meghan feels the Queen’s favourite dresser is to blame for the row.

Ms Kelly, 52, has worked with the Queen since 2002 and is now her personal assistant and senior dresser having risen through the ranks.

She is known to have stuck by the Queen through thick and thin – and the latest claims suggest she even supported Her Majesty’s decision to pick Meghan’s wedding tiara.

It comes after a previous book by reporter Robert Jobson revealed Harry told staff before the couple’s wedding: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”

The Queen even reportedly warned her grandson over Meghan’s attitude in the lead up to the big day at Windsor Castle in May.

Meghan initially wanted a tiara that featured emeralds, according to royal sources.

But the future Duke and Duchess of Sussex were unhappy when told her first choice was impossible, as no one knew exactly where it came from.

An insider said at the time: “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’.”

In the end, the future royal wore Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau made in 1932 for the big day.
