The Prince of Wales told the DoS not to wear a tiara to her first overseas state dinner, fearing it might look ‘extravagant’.

Doubtful. It seems that BRF simply prefer not to do tiara events overseas in general these days. Especially considering it’s in a country where the First Lady does not have a tiara at her disposal.

I’m becoming a bit bored by media claiming to have some kind of exclusive on things months after the fact. If it was truly something extraordinary, they wouldn’t have sat on their hands for months. And if it’s a new lead, makes you wonder ihow the topic even came up months after.

It 'comes up' IMO as an excuse for this tabloid to contrast Meghan with Kate (glittering with jewels) and as an excuse to go through the old tale of Meghan and the wedding tiara.

The DM knows very well that the Fiji banquet wasn't the same as a State Dinner. And of course the protocol Chiefs at BP would have briefed H+M long before the tour about tiaras not being worn.

I’m taking this story with a huge pinch of salt, a wedge of lime and a shot of tequila.

Daily Mail are at the far reaches of writing anything actually believable anymore.

I'll join you on that drink. You'd think the Fail would know that should Meghan have had any use for a tiara on the down under tour, it would be the Queen that would loan her one or advise her on what jewels to wear. Where in the world they came up with Charles is anyone's guess.

Check that tequila bottle. The Fail may have emptied it already.

Its never a competition and wearing a tiara and gowns and gazillion diamonds, rubies, emeralds and all the rest doesn't denote importance, rank, file, goodness of character, work ethic or anything remotely able to be judged.

Tiaras are reserved for specific occasions requiring white tie formal wear. The days where one would dress "to the nines" just to step out and collect the evening paper are long since gone.

The Fail is a dying breed and they'll grasp at anything these days but don't realize that the rope they're grasping at is the one that has a noose on it and about ready to hang 'em high.

Well it's Tiara gate 2.0. Recycling old gossip and tagging a new line. Charles is not sovereign yet so how can he determine what jewels to wear? Someone wants us to believe Charles and Meghan are not close.

Most of the inside "rumors" that are published about Meghan tend to be actually true to a certain extent at least. In this case, however, I agree that the Fiji banquet was not supposed to be a tiara event and the proper dress code would have been discussed with the Duchess long before the event.

Having said that, maybe Prince Charles also talked to her informally about the tour in general and, en passant, mentioned the issue of dress codes for those types of events, which might be the source of the story in the DM.

Oh pleaaaaaase who can believe that ? Still dont understand why this kind of clickbait headline is posted here. Really people ?
Thought it was a serious royal watchers community here, and as such WE ALL KNOW that british royal ladies don't wear tiaras anymore during official overseas tours (except Commonwealth summit).
"The Absence of a tiara drew attention" : best laugh of the week ....

On the same level Harry and Meghan are apparently moving to Malibu :

After all why don't we post these "news" ? The Daily Mail seems to get a free pass on this forum ...

It's a year ago today when the Sussexes started their tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand.
