Many stories have been floated about the leadup to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding regarding alleged behavior the Duchess exhibited as she planned her big day. However, a new report claims that despite pushback on other things she allegedly demanded, there was one thing the Duchess of Sussex demanded happen without relenting.

According to Tatler (via Express UK), Markle, who chose British stylist Claire Waight Keller, who works for Givenchy, when it came to her own dress for her wedding, wanted to have her American roots honored as well. As a result, she reached out to designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia at Oscar de la Renta, asking them to design the outfit for her mother, Doria Ragland.

“Meghan was adamant about having an American fashion house represented at the wedding since she’s American,” Garcia told the publication. “She called me directly. I had no idea she was able to do that or had my number—and gave me a 15-minute speech about why it was important to her.”

“I assumed it was her own wedding dress but at the end she said: ‘And would you be interested about making this dream come true for my mother?” he added.

The duo agreed to work on the outfit and were, in fact, the ones to design the pistachio green ensemble Ragland wore to the May 2018 nuptials.

However, while Markle did get what she desired by representing her American roots with her mother’s dress. She reportedly wasn’t as lucky when it came to other demands she reportedly made.

Reports surfaced last year that Markle did not want to initially wear the Queen Mary Lozenge Tiara at her wedding, but instead an Emerald one. However, she was told no by the Queen over concerns it was from Russia, and the exchange allegedly led to some issues.

In a new book at the time, Robert Jobson wrote that the Queen had to sit her grandson down because he was livid his bride wouldn’t get the tiara she wanted.

“Meghan had her heart set on this tiara with emeralds and Prince Harry hit the roof when they were told it was impossible for her to wear it. He provenance of the tiara could not be established. There were concerns it could have come from Russia originally,” he wrote. “There was a very heated exchange that prompted the Queen to speak to Harry. She said, ‘Meghan cannot have whatever she wants. She gets what tiara she’s given by me.’”
