Prince Harry hasn't exchanged strong words with the Queen about Meghan Markle's wedding tiara, sources have insisted.
A source close to the Duke of Sussex, 35, has alleged the King asked the Queen what the hell was going on during a phone call ahead of his wedding day and described the allegations as "completely ridiculous".
It comes after Finding Freedom writer Omid Scobie alleged that Prince Harry angrily called his grandmother 94 after an alleged argument with Her Majesty's longtime dresser, Angela Kelly.
During the alleged call, the prince allegedly asked if Meghan would be given time to try on her diamond bandeau tiara during a trial with her hairdresser before the big day, allegedly saying: "I don't know what the hell is going on, but this woman has to do this job for my future wife."
Prince Harry didn't yell at the Queen about Meghan Markle's wedding tiaras, a source close to the Duke has said
The source insisted that the queen is probably the person he most respects and values
However, a source has now refuted claims about what has come to be known as the "tiaragate" as "totally untrue", telling The Telegraph, "The Queen is probably the person he most respects and values."
They added that the proposal that the Duke "yelled at" his grandmother was "completely wrong and completely ridiculous".
Mr Scobie said in an interview with True Royalty TV aired today that Prince Harry was reportedly angry with Ms. Kelly, a close confidante of the Queen, after she "purposely dragged her feet" when Meghan asked for access to the tiara asked the couple's wedding in May 2018.
There were also reports of issues related to Meghan's choice of tiara. Her first choice is said to have been the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara, which Princess Eugenie wore at her wedding six months after the Sussexes' wedding.
Although the problem with the tiara was documented in Mr Scobie's bio, co-authored with Carolyn Durand, it is the first time the alleged telephone conversation with the Queen has been reported.
Mr Scobie said in an interview today, “Harry had to intervene. He called his grandmother and said, “I don't know what the hell is going on. This woman has to do this work for my future wife. And of course we can now see where this narrative "What Meghan wants, Meghan gets" comes from.

"Harry had the feeling that there were those within the institution who would at least stop at nothing to make Meghan's life difficult."
It's unclear why that phone conversation wasn't similarly retold in the bio – which says Harry didn't believe Ms. Kelly was "really not available" to help with the hair sample, thinking she was "deliberately ignoring Meghan ".
It says: “What followed between the prince and Angela was a heated exchange that was far from the typical reluctance expected. According to a source, Harry had no problem facing the problem. "He was fed up with it," said the aide … In the end, Harry had to talk to his grandmother about the situation. And she got her trial. & # 39;
The angry call came after an argument with Her Majesty's key assistant, Angela Kelly
According to the authors, a senior Buckingham Palace advisor insisted the Duke of Sussex was "oversensitive" when he accused Ms. Kelly of making it difficult for Meghan, but a source close to the prince said "nothing could convince Harry of this that some of it. " The old guard in the palace just didn't like Meghan and stopped at nothing to make her life difficult. "
The "Tiara series" symbolized the frustration of the Sussex people with the so-called "vipers" in the palace. Harry saw it as a "big nudge" that Ms. Kelly hadn't arranged for Meghan and her American hairdresser Serge Normant to get access to the glitzy Queen Mary bandeau headdress if they wanted.
Finding Freedom by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand was released last week
A friend said, “Meg flew out from Paris with her hairdresser for a hair exercise, and they needed the tiara.
Angela Kelly said she couldn't come to London (from Windsor) and Harry went ballistic. He was furious about the treatment of his then fiancée. What a nudge. & # 39; However, others insist that the couple misinterpreted Ms. Kelly's answer.
A source said: & # 39; Meghan requested access to the tiara. She hasn't made an appointment with Angela, but said, “We're at Buckingham Palace, we want the tiara. Can we have it now, please? & # 39; & # 39;
Angela was basically saying, I'm very sorry, it doesn't work that way. There is a record of these jewels. They are kept under a very tight lock and key. You can't show up and demand to have the tiara just because your hairdresser happens to be in town. & # 39;
Scobie also claims that Prince William has not spoken properly to his brother since revealing his plan to leave the UK for North America.
In a television interview promoting the book, Scobie said, “The brothers hadn't spoken since the time of the Sandringham Summit.
& # 39; They hadn't seen each other. This is really going to take time to heal. I think the distance between the brothers grew bigger and bigger. And that's partly because of the things that are happening – and we discuss them in the book. & # 39;
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's plan to step down from their royal duties made the brother's relationship difficult, Mr Scobie said.
In the television interview promoting the book, Mr. Scobie says, "The brothers hadn't spoken since the time of the Sandringham Summit."
He continued, “I really think where it went wrong for Harry and Meghan and the Cambridges was this decision to bring the roadmap to their new work model to the public.
& # 39; The statements were not discussed internally. This is really why William got hurt the most from wearing two hats.
"Not only is he the brother, he's a future king too, and he felt that this was damaging the family's reputation."
"That it made family business publicly available when it should have been discussed privately and there have been a lot of injuries there that continue to this day."
The Queen appointed Mrs. Kelly, nicknamed AK47 for her uncompromising manner, a member of the Royal Victorian Order in 2006 and promoted her to lieutenant of the same order in 2012 for "outstanding personal service".
She is also Her Majesty's personal advisor and curator (jewelry, regalia and Queen's wardrobe), a role not previously granted to any royal servant.
