Prince Harry Failed To Contact Angela Kelly Days Before His And Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding?

One of Prince Harry's stories revolved around Queen Elizabeth's former senior dresser, Angela Kelly. The latter was in charge of keeping the late monarch's tiaras, one of which Meghan Markle wanted to use on her wedding day.

According to the Duke of Sussex, Kelly went MIA just before the royal wedding. And he suddenly appeared out of nowhere just days before Markle walked down the aisle. As such, Prince Harry was left with no other choice but to call her out.

"Meg's hairdresser had come in from France for the rehearsal and the tiara still wasn't there," Prince Harry wrote (via Us Weekly).

Queen Elizabeth's Former Senior Dresser Took Issue With Meghan Markle's Tiara Of Choice?

Three years ago, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand also discussed the issue surrounding Kelly in their book Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan, and the Making of a Modern Royal Family.

The authors claimed that Kelly took issue with Markle's choice of a tiara – the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau tiara.

According to Scobie and Durand, the rumors about Queen Elizabeth refusing to lend the tiara that Markle wanted to wear weren't true. After all, it was Kelly who seemingly gave the Duchess of Sussex a hard time.

"Kelly was dragging her feet in helping Meghan obtain access to her chosen tiara for a hair trial in advance of the big day," they wrote (via Town & Country).

Years later, Markle said that she was very fortunate to have worn the tiara that she wanted.

"When it came to the tiara on the day, I was very fortunate to be able to choose this gorgeous art deco style bandeau tiara. Harry and I had gone to Buckingham Palace to meet with her Majesty the Queen to select one of the options that were there which was an incredibly surreal day as you can imagine," she said.

Harry added that trying on the tiara was every girl's dream, and he added that it was also the headpiece that suited his wife best.

"Funnily enough, it was the one that suited the best. The one that looked the best on you without question. I shouldn't have really been there—but an incredible loan from my grandmother," he gushed.
