Queen gave ‘Meghan a dressing down’ for scolding Windsor Castle staff over egg-free macrobiotic dishes for the royal wedding, author claims
- Duchess, 37, visited Windsor Castle in run up to Royal Wedding to taste the food
- She wanted macrobiotic alternative and complained she could taste egg in dish
- Katie Nicholl said the Queen told Meghan ‘we don’t speak to people like that’
- Author says Harry and Meghan risk ‘eclipsing’ other members of Royal family
Meghan Markle received stern words from the Queen following a row over egg, a royal author has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, travelled to Windsor Castle ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry, 34, last May to test some of the food that was going to be served at the reception.
Author Katie Nicholl told how the former actress had insisted on there being a ‘macrobiotic alternative’ for some of the Hollywood star guests who follow the diet which derives from Zen Buddhism.
She told Yahoo’s Royal Box: ‘[Meghan] got very upset when she felt that she could taste egg in a dish when she was told there was no egg in there, and she said, “No, I can taste it, I can taste there’s egg in this dish.”

The Queen informed Meghan that they ‘don’t speak to people like that’ in the Royal Family after the former actress complained of tasting egg in a macrobiotic dish
‘I think there was a bit of an upset when suddenly the Queen walked in, because of course, this was Windsor Castle, this is her home. And she just quietly took Meghan to the side and said, “Meghan, in this family we don’t speak to people like that”.’
It wouldn’t be the first time Meghan has invoked the ire of Her Majesty. In November last year it was reported the monarch ‘had words’ with Prince Harry over his ‘difficult bride’s’ choice of tiara.
The Duchess of Sussex was said to have had her ‘heart set’ on a tiara containing emeralds but was told she couldn’t wear it because the green stones might have come from Russia.
A royal insider told The Sun that the Queen stepped in and told Harry: ‘She gets what tiara she’s given by me.’
Meghan also reportedly had a falling out with Kate Middleton over the way the former Suits star spoke to her staff when they spent Christmas together – although this was later emphatically denied by the palace.

With the Duchess of Sussex due to give birth any day now, Katie said she expects the new parents will ‘do things differently’ to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, particularly when it comes to childcare.
‘They’ll shake up tradition, they’ll push those Royal boundaries,’ Katie said.
‘I think there is every chance that the nanny could be American. I think it is probably quite likely that they are not going to be a Norland nanny. I don’t think that sort of traditionalism that we’ve seen with the Cambridges is the way the Sussexes want to go.
Royal author Katie Nicholl rubbished claims that Harry and Meghan’s alleged plans to move abroad is them being ‘exiled from Britain’
‘I’ve certainly heard that Harry, not just Meghan, would like to have a more relaxed approach to their parenting.’
Katie, author of Harry and Meghan: Life, Loss and Love, said the Sussexes have ‘occupied the spotlight’ since the Royal wedding, but rubbished claims that their alleged plans to move abroad is them being ‘exiled from Britain’.
‘My understanding, [Harry] knew he had met “the one” and that they wanted to be an international couple,’ Katie explained.

Katie said she doesn’t think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, pictured with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Charles on Christmas Day last year, will be away for years at a time, adding: ‘I think there is a risk that they could eclipse other members of the Royal family’
‘That they always wanted to be based in Britain but they wanted to spend more time in Africa, they wanted to be the international jetsetters of the Royal family. I think that’s always been their vision.’
She said she doesn’t think they’ll be away for years at a time, adding: ‘I think there is a risk that they could eclipse other members of the Royal family.’
Speaking about the recent claims that the palace fear Meghan could be ‘bigger than Diana’, Katie said there were negatives that came with the late princess ‘eclipsing her husband’.
‘It did have, at points, a negative knock-on effect for the monarchy,’ she said.
