While tensions between the Crown and the Sussexes have gradually become evident, they are nothing new. In their Finding Freedom biography, devoted to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, journalist Omid Scobie and producer Carolyn Durand revealed that, for their wedding, the grandson of Her Majesty Elizabeth II had wished to be pampered for his beautiful . Even if it means breaking the protocol. Indeed, according to the book, quoted by the British tabloid The Mail on Sunday this Sunday, August 2, when the future bride wanted to try on a tiara, the royal designer, advisor and even friend of Her Highness (at her service for many years ), Angela Kelly, had not complied with this request, in accordance with protocol.
Enough to push the Duke of Sussex to his limits. Furious, Prince Harry would then have lost his cool, “using offensive language” … before being cropped by Her Majesty Elizabeth II during a private meeting. “He was firmly put in his place. He had been downright rude,” a source close to the royal family told the Mail on Sunday. In Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand would not, however, mention this meeting, saying that the younger brother of Prince William had estimated that Angela Kelly was putting sticks in the wheels of Meghan Markle. He would have thought that Buckingham’s ‘old guard’ “just didn’t like Meghan and would stop at nothing to make her life difficult.” The close to the Windsor-Mountbatten clan has therefore rectified the situation, still in the columns of the Mail on Sunday. “Angela basically said, ‘I’m so sorry, that’s not how it works.’ There is a protocol in place on this jewelry. ”
Numerous breaches of protocol
For Prince Harry, there was only one golden rule to apply: “what Meghan wants, Meghan gets.” This is how the young father would have guided his staff in the organization of this wedding. A motto to which, according to some, he would also have folded during the Megxit. Because, in September 2019, while they were in South Africa, Meghan Markle would have realized on her own that her place was not within the royal family.
“Meghan was dancing with the kids and that was a stark contrast to some of the events that had unfolded during her pregnancy. She’s in this affordable dress, in an affordable neighborhood, her hair is done in a ponytail and she is dancing with it. children, “said specialist Christine Ross. Another breach of protocol which seemed to herald the departure of the Sussexes for the other side of the Atlantic, which occurred only four months later. To the surprise of Her Majesty Elizabeth II.
