The Queen's decision was supported by Prince William, who is allegedly angry with Meghan.
Meghan Markle's relationship with the royal family has had its ups and downs. Recently, royal sources stated that the Duchess of Sussex has reportedly been banned by the Queen from borrowing jewelry from the royal collection. While the reason remains a mystery, it is believed that it was done "in snub over Kate," according to Hull Daily Mail.
In the recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Meghan revealed shocking details about their life in Britain with the royal family. Also, the Duchess cleared the rumors about her making Kate cry. She revealed that it was the other way round. "A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to ... the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings," said Meghan.
The public statement is believed to have ticked off Prince William and now, the Queen too.
As per the ban, Meghan is not allowed to use any of the historic pieces such as diamond necklaces, brooches, and tiaras. Unlike her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, and sister-in-law Kate, Meghan would be missing out on the priceless jewelry pieces that belong to the family. On several occasions, Kate has been seen with Diana's signature tiaras and other pieces of jewelry.
Prince William supported the Queen in her decision. Previously, a royal insider stated, "First and foremost, William cannot countenance the way Meghan has treated his wife. Kate attempted to try and help Meghan understand the responsibilities of royal life, but her efforts were constantly misinterpreted," according to Mirror Online. They continued, "But to name Kate so publicly during the Oprah interview as the person who made her cry was beyond the pale. Meghan would have been acutely aware that Kate is powerless to fight back."
Also, royal author Penny Junor opined William might have held Harry responsible for his wife's statements. "I would have thought one of the things William was most cross about was the fact that Meghan threw Kate under the bus. It wasn't Harry, but it was his wife, and he must have known that she was going to do that and he clearly hasn't corrected it in any way," said Junor to Daily Express, according to Mirror Online.
However, neither Prince William nor Kate came forward to clarify Meghan's allegations.
Meanwhile, sources close to the royal family stated that the Queen's ban may not be permanent. According to Hull, Meghan might be given access to royal jewelry in the future.
However, this is not the first time Meghan has missed out on the sentimental pieces of jewelry from the royal family. As per Hull, after Diana's death in 1997, her engagement ring belonged to Prince Harry. But he gave it up when he heard William was going to propose to Kate.
“Harry said to him: ‘Wouldn’t it be fitting if she had mummy’s ring?'. Then one day that ring will be sat on the throne of England. Harry gave up his precious treasure. His one thing he kept from his mother, he gave to his brother. That’s selfless, kind, and exactly who Diana was," said Paul Burrell, the former royal butler.
