Meghan Markle has been banned from wearing royal jewellery by the Queen, according to reports.

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, who married Prince Harry, 34, in May last year is not permitted to wear items from the royal collection, including iconic tiara which were once worn by Harry’s late mother Princess Diana.

Kate Middleton, 37, the wife of Prince William, 36, has worn these pieces, however.

The Queen is said to have assured William, the heir to the British Throne, that Meghan will not wear any pieces worn by his mother.

Sun journalist Dan Wootton discussed the story on ITV’s Lorraine today. He explained: “The Queen is in charge of the royal collection, a massive collection of all of the artefacts that the country and the Royal Family own.

“Included in that are some iconic prices of jewellery, many of which have been leant to Princess Diana.

“We’ve seen Kate wear certain items from the royal collection.

“The Queen has to give permission for any member of the Royal Family to wear any of these items of jewellery.”

And according to him, the Queen has decided not to extend this honour to the former-actress. He said: “The queen has actually banned Meghan from wearing any pieces of this jewellery and the Queen personally assured Prince William this includes any piece that was worn by Princess Diana.”

The journalist speculated that Meghan’s behaviour in the past is behind the decision made by the Queen.

“They weren’t happy with some of Meghan’s behaviour before and after the royal wedding,” Dan claimed, “The Queen is a stickler for some of the rules and traditions.”

And the drama has not been limited to Harry, William, his wife and the Queen. Prince Charles, 70, was called in by the Queen to deliver the news to Meghan – who is unlikely to have been thrilled by the decision.

Charles and Meghan are said to have a close relationship, with the Prince of Wales walking the Suits star partway down the aisle on her wedding day, when her father Thomas Markle could not attend due to health concerns.

Charles is even said to have the nickname “Tungsten” for Meghan, due to her strong character.

Dan said: “It has got a bit awkward though as it was Prince Charles who was brought in to call Meghan on her royal tour of Fiji to say ‘you really can’t wear a tiara’.”

Meghan and Harry attended a state dinner on the island, and the Duchess of Sussex was notably without a tiara. However, she did wear a stunning pair of diamond drop earrings from Butani.

Dan added: “Prince Harry thinks ‘why does my wife, who is a Duchess, not have access to this stuff?’”.

Meghan has worn some pieces of jewellery that did belong to Diana, but these were from the private collection passed down to Harry and William to share between their wives.

Meghan dies have some very expensive jewellery given to her by Prince Charles, including a Cartier bracelet worth £21,000.

It has been claimed that Prince William and Meghan Markle clash, as an expert said feud rumours are “undoubtedly true”. 

There have recently been claims of a feud between between Kate Middleton and Meghan, but now an author said said the issue may lie with “responsible” William.

Author of ‘Untitled: The Real Wallace Simpson, The Duchess of Windsor’ and ‘A Princess in Love’, Anna Pasternak appeared on Yahoo’s ongoing series, The Royal Box today.

She said rumours of a rift between the couples are “undoubtedly true”.

Anna said: “I think that Prince William is very responsible and as I said knows what his role is and Kate has come alongside that executed that extremely well and I think it’s quite difficult to have had Meghan who have seems to want to modernise and set her own agenda and you can’t have it all.”
