New details emerge about Meghan Markle’s alleged tiara wedding drama with the Queen

Meghan Markle has admitted she had a hard time finding her voice when she was still a full-time member of the royal family. During an interview with The Cut in August, the Duchess of Sussex said it feels great to be able to talk about matters that have always been close to her heart, regardless of what anyone has to say about them. She said: “It’s so real. i feel different i feel clearer It’s like finding my voice – not finding it. I’ve had my voice for a long time, but I can use it.”

One of the reasons Meghan is so happy to have the freedom to say whatever she wants is because she often felt mute living behind the palace doors with the British royal family. In the summer of 2020, the “Suits” star admitted she felt she was “unprotected by the institution” and “not defending herself,” according to documents forming part of her legal battle against the Mail on Sunday were (according to the Daily Beast). Not only did Meghan feel vulnerable, but she couldn’t fight back baseless rumors that surfaced online – particularly those related to her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018.

More specifically, she couldn’t comment on a tiara she either wore or chose not to wear.

Queen Elizabeth II reportedly stopped Meghan Markle from wearing a tiara on her wedding day

When Queen Elizabeth II said no, you better believe it was a hard no, period. According to Page Six, the Queen denied Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, the opportunity to wear an emerald tiara during Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex in 2018. The claim was first made by royal socialite Lady Colin Campbell in her book Meghan and Harry: The Real Story in 2020. Now Robert Lacey appears to have made the same claim in his book Battle of Brothers: William and Harry – the Friendship and the Feuds,” according to Express. Meghan reportedly wanted to wear an emerald green headdress, which originated in Russia, but Queen Elizabeth apparently turned down the request.

Lacey said: “The Queen felt she had to say ‘no’ to Meghan’s first choice.” He added that the tiara is controversial as it was said to have been worn by a tsarist princess. The author said that the tiara “was one of those which, after the Russian Revolution, found its way into the hands of Windsor through ‘undefined’, if not to say shady, channels.” The tiara actually has a very interesting history. According to Tatler, the Vladimir tiara was reportedly smuggled out of Russia after the “assassination of Tsar Nicholas II.”

Perhaps Queen Elizabeth did Meghan a favor by keeping this tiara off her head – but no word yet on how the Duchess feels about it.
