Meghan and Harry latest – Secret SCANDAL behind Duchess' wedding tiara that the Queen banned, enraging 'ignorant' Harry

PRINCE Harry shouted "what Meghan wants, Meghan gets" during a furious row over his wife-to-be's wedding day tiara.

The Queen is widely reported to have blocked Meghan wearing from her first choice headpiece – a beautiful emerald headdress "from Russia".

But a new book has offered a unique new perspective on the row and brands Harry "ignorant" for assuming the Queen's ban was a snub against Meghan rather than an attempt to prevent yet another royal scandal.

Author Robert Lacey claims that the tiara in question had found its way into the Royal Collection via "dodgy channels – and for an undisclosed price – in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution."

"For this reason, the emerald tiara was seldom, if ever, put on public display and it would suit neither the palace nor Meghan herself that spring if newspapers started speculating about which Tsarist princess had worn the tiara and how she had been assassinated," he added.

    Currently, princesses Eugenie and Beatrice do not have that status and as a result have no access to the Sovereign Grant.

    Charles, who is said to have plans of “streamlining” the royal family when he becomes king sparked anger with his decision not to elevate the status of the princesses.

    In a Channel 5 documentary, palace expert Katie Nicholl said Andrew's view “was that they had the HRH titles therefore they are blood princesses and therefore they should be full-time working members of the Royal Family.”

    She added: “It didn't pan out that way and that definitely caused tension between the royal brothers, Charles and Andrew.
