They further revealed that the ban was also backed by Prince William.
The Duchess of Sussex has apparently been banned from borrowing any jewelry from the Royal collection, according to Royal sources. Though the reason hasn't been revealed entirely, it is believed that it was done 'in snub over Kate'. The Queen allegedly approved the ban which now forbids Meghan Markle from wearing any of the historic pieces such as diamond necklaces, brooches, and tiaras. Apparently, the ban was also backed by Prince William, The Sun reported.
Some of the priceless items Markle will be missing out on includes the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara which was made for Queen Mary in 1919. The tiara can also be worn as a necklace. Many jewels that are now inaccessible to her were worn by her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, and later by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, on multiple occasions. For example, one of Diana's signature tiaras was 'The Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara' designed by Queen Mary, Kate was next to be seen wearing the same. Sources further said that the Queen's ban is not necessarily permanent and that Meghan could be allowed to borrow items in the future, reported Hull.
This, however, is not the first time that Markle has missed out on historic royal jewellery. Kate's iconic engagement ring actually belonged to Prince Harry following Princess Diana's death in 1997. Former royal butler Paul Burrell confirmed the same and said that Harry had made a touching sacrifice by giving his brother a chance to use it instead. “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," he said, reported Hull.
