'Royal Household staff stepped in and told her office politely, but firmly, that this was the Queen's Chapel and it simply wasn't appropriate. '
'Meghan wanted staff to go around with these atomisers, like spritzer guns, and spray the chapel with scent before anyone arrived.
However, according to royal biographers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand in their new book Finding Freedom, which has been serialised in The Times and Sunday Times, the Diptyque Baies diffusers were provided by the brand and were approved by the palace ahead of the royal wedding.
After the nuptials in May 2018, royal sources had claimed that the odour of the 15th century chapel did not find favour with the soon-to-be Duchess of Sussex, and said she had insisted on masking it with air fresheners before her wedding guests arrived.
The £130 scent diffusers used to mask the 'musty' smell of St George's Chapel during Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle were approved by Buckingham Palace ahead of her wedding day.
