The Queen gave Prince Harry a dressing for using offensive language about her closest aide, as The Mail can show on Sunday.
The scolding came after Harry, 35, was furious when Queen Angela Kelly's dresser and confidante suddenly asked Meghan's visit to Buckingham Palace with her hairdresser to try on a tiara the couple had chosen for their wedding, could not meet.
When it was pointed out that the protocol stipulates that an appointment must be made to access the Queen's jewels, Harry is said to have used an offensive language about Ms. Kelly when he put pressure on courtiers to persuade her to London to travel and unlock the closet in which the tiara is located.

Ms. Kelly found out about the outbreak and made the queen aware of his bad language, which prompted the monarch to invite her grandson to a private meeting. "He was firmly put in his place," said a royal source. "He was downright rude."
A new biography of Duke and Duchess of Sussex accuses Ms. Kelly of "deliberately pulling her feet" when Meghan asked for access to the tiara before the couple's wedding in May 2018.
According to the authors of Finding Freedom, Harry felt that some of the "old guards" in the palace "simply didn't like Meghan and would stop at nothing to make their lives difficult".
But last night, a royal source specifically said, "The version of the book of what happened would not be everyone else's memory of events, let alone those that were close to him."

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 Mrs. Kelly hadn't organized for Meghan and her American hairdresser Serge Normant to give them access to the glittering Queen Mary Bandeau headdress if they wanted to.
A friend said: “Meg had flown to Paris for a hair exercise with her hairdresser and they needed the tiara.
Angela Kelly said she could not come to London and Harry became ballistic. He was angry about the treatment of his fiancee at the time. Such a nudge. & # 39; Others insist, however, that the couple misinterpreted Ms. Kelly's answer.
A source said: & # 39; Meghan requested access to the tiara. She didn't meet Angela, but said, “We're at Buckingham Palace, we want the tiara. Can we have it now please? & # 39;
Angela essentially said, "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 request to have the tiara just because your barber happens to be in town. & # 39;
Unlike previous reports, Harry's anger wasn't about which tiara Meghan was allowed to wear – it was about access to it.
"Harry was very quick to tell everyone about his anger and frustration," said another royal source.
"He let a lot of people know that he was unhappy. He tried to achieve what Meghan wanted by calling others to put pressure on Angela to bend the rules.
& # 39; He insisted on finding his own way. There was never an appointment when Angela hadn't shown up.
& # 39; Harry and Meghan may have misinterpreted that she was told she couldn't access the tiara right away, but Angela followed the Palace protocol.
"It wasn't a nudge, it's just the way the institution works."
Ms. Kelly found out about the outbreak and made the queen aware of his bad language, which prompted the monarch to invite her grandson to a private meeting. "He was firmly put in his place," said a royal source. "He was downright rude"
Regardless, Harry may have been badly advised to criticize Ms. Kelly, 61, a Liverpool docker daughter who has become one of the Queen's most trusted advisors through the royal ranks. She is wearing Her Majesty's shoes and the monarch once said to her: "We could be sisters."
The Queen named Ms. Kelly, nicknamed AK47 for her uncompromising nature, a member of the Royal Victorian Order in 2006, and promoted her to lieutenant in the same order in 2012 to perform "outstanding personal service."
She is also Her Majesty's personal advisor and curator (Queen's jewelry, insignia and wardrobe), a role that has never been granted to a royal servant.
