The Queen ‘had words’ with Prince Harry over his ‘difficult’ bride Meghan Markle’s preferred choice of wedding tiara, it was claimed today.
The groom allegedly told staff: ‘What Meghan wants, Meghan gets’ before they married in the grounds of Windsor Castle in May, according to a book by Robert Jobson.
The Duchess was said to have had her ‘heart set’ on a tiara containing emeralds but was told she couldn’t wear it because the green stones might have come from Russia, The Sun reports.
A royal insider told the newspaper that the Queen stepped in and told Harry: ‘She gets what tiara she’s given by me.’
‘The Queen also questioned why Meghan needed a veil for the wedding, given it was to be her second marriage’, the source alleged.

‘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 source told The Sun.
The provenance of the tiara couldn’t be established, the source said, adding that there were concerns it originally came from Russia.
Meghan ended up wearing Queen Mary’s diamond and platinum bandeau tiara on her wedding day.
She picked the tiara from the Queen’s collection during a visit to Buckingham Palace with Prince Harry.
And she gave no hint that it wasn’t her first choice.
She described her visit to see the Queen and choose a headpiece for her wedding as ‘an incredibly surreal day’.
Meghan and Prince Harry recorded their memories of the wedding for an audio commentary that is part of the new ‘Relive the Royal Wedding’ exhibition at Windsor Castle, which opened last month.
Speaking about the tiara she wore, Meghan 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.’

Meghan Markle (pictured with the Queen in June) is ‘used to working in a Hollywood environment’ and so can be ‘difficult’, the source said
She added: ‘I think it was just perfect because it was so clean and simple – and also to that point, an extension of what Clare [Waight Keller] and I had been trying to do with the dress which was have something that could be so incredibly timeless but still feel modern.’
Harry joked in the commentary: ‘Every girl’s dream to be able to try on a tiara, and, funnily enough, the one that suited the best, the one that looked the best on you without question, I shouldn’t have really even been there, but such an incredible loan by my grandmother, it was very sweet.’
Former Suits star Meghan is ‘used to working in a Hollywood environment’ and so can be ‘difficult,’ the source claimed.
She has also reportedly clashed with the Duchess of Cambridge over how staff are treated, according to the source.
