TAIPEI (The China Post) – A royal author has claimed that the monarch gave “Meghan (Markle) a dressing down” for scolding Windsor Castle staff over egg-free macrobiotic dishes for the royal wedding.
The incident unfolded before she got married to Prince Harry in May last year while testing some of the food that was going to be served at the reception.
Royal author Katie Nicholl said that the former “Suits” actress insisted on there being a “macrobiotic alternative” for some of the Hollywood star guests who follow the diet which derives from Zen Buddhism.
She told Yahoo’s Royal Box: “(Meghan) got very upset when she felt that she could taste egg in a dish when she was told there was no egg in there, and she said, ‘No, I can taste it, I can taste there’s egg in this dish.’”
She added that “there was a bit of an upset when suddenly the Queen walked in, because of course, this was Windsor Castle, this is her home.”
The Queen reportedly took Meghan to the side and said: “Meghan, in this family we don’t speak to people like that.”
In November last year, it was reported that the monarch “had words” again with Prince Harry over his “difficult bride’s choice of a tiara,” she said.
The Duchess of Sussex was said to have had her “heart set” on a tiara containing emeralds, Nicholl explained but “Meghan was told she couldn’t wear it because the green stones might have come from Russia.”
A royal insider told The Sun that the Queen stepped in and told Harry: “She gets what tiara she’s given by me.”
Earlier today, it was announced the Duke of Sussex was cutting his trip to the Netherlands short, only spending one day abroad and not the planned two, as Meghan is due to give birth any day now.
The couple have broken with tradition and decided to keep the details surrounding the birth of their first child a secret, which means nobody knows where they’ve decided to have the baby.
The little royal will be seventh in line to the throne, and the Queen and Prince Philip’s seventh great-grandchild — and fans around the world are on the lookout for any sign that the time is finally here.
