Did Prince Charles tell Meghan Markle to dial it back a little?

The Duchess of Sussex was apparently told by her father-in-law, the Prince of Wales, not to wear a tiara during an event in Fiji last fall, the Daily Mail reported.

Prince Charles allegedly warned Meghan that borrowing a jeweled tiara from the Royal Collection would look too extravagant for the first overseas state dinner.

“Meghan did not understand all of this because she was new to the role and so Prince Charles told her that it would not be appropriate,” a source told the Mail.

However, “it was all very kindly done,” the source insisted.

Instead, Meghan arrived at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva wearing a blue floor-length gown and dangling diamond earrings. The Mail reported that Meghan is believed to have borrowed the stunning earrings from the Royal Collection.
