Off with her jewels.
The Queen of England has forbidden Meghan Markle from wearing jewelry made famous by the revered mother of husband Harry, Princess Diana, the U.K.-based Sun reported.
The ban on the Duchess donning items from the Royal Collection has fueled tensions between her and senior royals while upsetting Henry and worsening relations with his brother, William, the Sun reported.
The Queen has loaned pieces to both Diana and William's wife, Kate.
"This is a surprising situation that has been going on behind the scenes over the past few months and has caused tension and upset, especially for Harry," one unnamed source told the Sun.
"It is at the discretion of the Queen and trusted advisers which items in the Royal Collection she chooses to loan out and to whom. Aspects of Meghan's behavior, including before the Royal Wedding, caused resentment with forces within Buckingham Palace. To be perfectly honest, the Queen herself was not impressed with some of Meghan's demands, especially as a new member of the family."
The source told the Sun it is all about rank, with the Queen "showing that maintaining the correct order and precedence within the family is important."
The art collection, amassed over 400 years and comprising more than a million objects, is held by the ruling monarch. Many are inherited while some are the Queen's personal items, the Sun reported.
Meghan has been able to wear jewelry from Diana's personal collection, which the princess allocated to her sons' future wives before her death, the news outlet reported.
