Meghan Markle faced a lot while she was living with the royal family in London. The results of this led to her move to the US. From negative coverage from the press to strife within the family, the actress has had several not-so-good experiences with her in-laws. But the 41-year-old actress once faced the anger of the late Queen of the United Kingdom when she was still a part of the Royal Family.
The Duchess of Sussex was not permitted to wear the famous royal jewels that Princess Diana made famous. Late Queen Elizabeth II, the grandmother of her husband, carried out the act of making them unavailable for Markle. In 2019, sources from the royal palace revealed that the Queen has had enough of the Suits actress’s attitude and hence denied her the possession of the Royal jewelry collection.

On the other hand, the former queen of the UK has often loaned the pieces from the jewel collection of the Princess of Wales to Kate Middleton. Moreover, according to The Sun’s sources, her majesty informed Prince Harry directly about this. It also sparked rumors that this decision of the queen would affect the relationship between the royal brothers.

But this was not the first time Markle was barred from wearing the royal jewels.
Prince Charles once told Meghan Markle not to wear a tiara
Apparently, the late Queen was not the only member who barred the Duchess of Sussex from wearing a piece of jewelry. As a consequence of the expanded restrictions on the Royal Collection, Prince Charles once asked Meghan Markle not to wear an emerald tiara during a trip to Fiji in October 2018.
Contradictorily, the sources also claimed that there are no personal grudges her majesty held against the actress. It was all about the hierarchy, and the former queen wanted to demonstrate the value of upholding the correct hierarchy and seniority within the family. Despite Markle’s popularity, Kate holds an upper position over her and hence is the real descendant of the royal jewels.
As for Princess Diana's own jewelry, which is not a gift from the royal family, So it's not royal jewels.
it was automatically inherited by her daughters-in-law.

The then-reigning queen was the owner of the art collection, which has grown to include more than a million pieces over the course of 400 years. And even though some of them were from Queen’s personal collection, most of them were the property of inheritance.
Yet another insider claimed that the Palace did not want the American actress to put her hands on the royal jewelry yet. According to the experts, even if the Duchess of Sussex got access to the jewels, it wouldn’t be in the same manner as it was for the other British Royal family members.

There you go…..the treatment to Meghan isn’t fair. I would leave the FIRM too. They could have lend her some of the jewelry if they really want to. But they choose not. They’re happy now in Montecito….and with their new money, Harry can buy Meghan any grand jewelry she wants, even a tiara. A REVENGE TIARA.

She had not gi enough back a piece of jewelry she borrowed, plus she said she lost a bracelet she borrowed

There is a piece of jewelry that Mm never has given back. There’s more to this story than this piece. The Crown Jewels are loaned out to Senior/Working Royals. Harry and Mm were not Senior Royals. There’s three sides to a story, your side,my side and the truth. The biggest truth is that Mm has stolen jewelry before Queen Elizabeth passed.

I never heard of the lost.or stolen jewelry but I did hear that she threw a fit over the wedding tiara. She wanted one the Queen showed her several but that was not good enough for MM she wanted one the Queen did not offer her.She went back complaining to Harry so He went to his grandmother saying ( What Magan what’s M get) and the queen replied oh does she after that she no longer had access to the royal jewels other then what the Queen offered to let her barrows or what was given her .I don’t blame the royals for not trusting her after that you pick from what you are offered and be grateful not a lunatic over what you can’t have.

She figured that once she got one foot in the door, she was entitled to everything . NOT!. You marry someone and then go to your spouse’s family home etc you don’t expect bto take what or get everything thing you want or see. She’s not and will never will be entitled. She’s nothing any more. She only married Harry because she thought he was more than a millionaire. She admitted that. What a nasty gold digger.
