Royal expert and author Daniela Elsner explained in more detail in an article in the news.com.ouch, that “Meghan’s choice to opt-out of such an expensive item, it reflects the tension that is inherent in that it is a member of the royal family.
“That’s it, you’re a member of an obscenely wealthy clan, but you are not meant to show off the wealth,” said Elsner, adding that “appear to be humble, it is an important task required for each of the working royal, even though you live in a castle, and your family has a safe deposit box filled with priceless jewels.”
