A new biography has claimed there was no dispute between Meghan Markle and the Queen over her choice of wedding tiara.
When the Duchess of Sussex married Prince Harry back in 2018, she stunned in the Queen Mary tiara from Queen Elizabeth’s jewellery collection.
But after the couple tied the knot, multiple outlets reported that Meghan initially wanted to wear a different tiara, but couldn’t because the Queen denied her request.
At the time, insiders said the Queen warned her grandson over Meghan’s attitude.
But in a new biography called Finding Freedom, royal journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claim the real dispute was between Harry and the Queen’s longtime dresser, Angela Kelly.
According to the authors, Harry felt Angela was dragging her feet in helping Meghan obtain access to her chosen tiara for a hair trial before their wedding day.
Angela, 52, has worked for the Queen since 2002, and also acts as her personal assistant.
Finding Freedom is set to be published next month, and the book will shed light on the couple’s departure from the Royal Family, and the events that led to them stepping down from their roles at the end of March.
The biography was reportedly written “with the participation of those closest to the couple”, but Harry and Meghan have denied being involved with the book whatsoever.
A spokesperson for the couple has said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom.”
“This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
