The ‘telling off’ came after the Prince got upset when the Queen’s dresser and confidante Angela Kelly was unable to meet Meghan’s sudden demand to visit Buckingham Palace. The sudden trip came as Meghan was looking to go to the palace with her hairdresser to try on a tiara the pair had chosen for their wedding. However, it was pointed out that protocol dictates an appointment must be made to access the Queen’s jewels.
On hearing this news, Harry is said to have used offensive language about Ms Kelly as he heaped pressure on courtiers to persuade her to travel to London.
Upon doing so, the Duke wanted staff to unlock the cupboard where the tiara was kept.
The Queen learned of the outburst via Ms Kelly and proceeded to summon her grandson to a private meeting.
A Royal source said: “He was put firmly in his place.”
And that: “He had been downright rude.”
There have been accusations of Ms Kelly deliberately dragging her feet’ when Meghan asked for access to the tiara before the couple’s wedding in May 2018.
These accusations were revealed in a new biography about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who deny any involvement in the making of the book.

The authors claim Harry felt that some of the staff at the palace did not like Meghan and would stop at nothing to make her life difficult.
However, a royal source told the Daily Mail the book’s version of events may not match up with everyone’s versions.
They said: “The book’s version of what happened would not be everyone else’s recollection of events and certainly not those who were close to it.”
The ‘tiara row’ is said to have symbolised the frustration of the Sussexes with the so-called ‘vipers’ at the Palace.

The fact that Ms Kelly refused to organise and grant Meghan and her hairdresser’s access to the headpiece when they wished was something Harry saw as a huge snub, the book claims.
A friend said: “Meg had flown her hairdresser over from Paris for a hair practice and they needed the tiara.”
“Angela Kelly said she couldn’t come to London and Harry went ballistic.”
“He was furious at the treatment of his then-fiancée.”
“Such a snub.’ But others insist the couple misinterpreted Ms Kelly’s reply.”
A source said: “Meghan demanded access to the tiara. She didn’t make an appointment with Angela, but said, ‘We’re at Buckingham Palace, we want the tiara. Can we have it now please?”
“Angela essentially said, ‘I’m very sorry, that’s not how it works.”
“There’s protocol in place over these jewels. They’re kept under very tight lock and key.”
“You can’t turn up and demand to have the tiara just because your hairdresser happens to be in town.”
Although reports have suggested otherwise, Harry’s fury appeared to be at Meghan’s lack of access to the tiara.
A Royal source said: “Harry was very quick to let everybody know of his anger and frustration.”
