A British newspaper says the Canadian bride of the Queen's eldest grandson is being blamed for a controversial deal with celebrity magazine Hello! for exclusive photos of their wedding at Windsor Castle.
Montrealer Autumn Kelly married Peter Phillips on Saturday at the castle's 15th-century St. George's Chapel in front of 300 guests, including the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, and Phillips' mother, Princess Anne.
Also on hand was Prince Harry and his girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
The Daily Mail's website quoted a "royal insider" saying: "The blame is being laid at her (Kelly's) door."
But the newspaper later reported that Mr. Phillips had given the final approval for the million-dollar deal along with Ms. Kelly.
The report said the Royal Family was not consulted on the deal with Hello! - said to be worth $1-million - and only found out about it when an interview with the couple appeared in the magazine last week.
The Daily Mail quoted another royal source saying Ms. Kelly had to make the reported deal because of the expense and the fact no one else would pick up the tab.
A senior royal source quoted by The Telegraph newspaper said a similar arrangement will not happen again. "In hindsight it should never have happened in the first place."
The newspaper said senior royals, including the Queen, were upset that the Royal Family has been accused of "selling out" for commercial gain by allowing access to St. George's Chapel.
Hello! magazine published almost 60 pages of photographs taken during and after the wedding, including ones showing the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales.
"The British public would expect the Queen to rise above being pictured in the pages of Hello! She is the Queen, not a footballer's wife," the Telegraph quoted Labour MP Ian Gibson as saying.
On Thursday the gossip website Royal Anecdotes said princes William and Harry let it be known they are unhappy.
It quoted a royal source saying: "Neither Peter nor the magazine sought their approval, and, if they had, it certainly would not have been given. What has happened has not gone down well at all."
Mr. Phillips, who is 11th in line to the throne, met Ms. Kelly in 2003, when both were working at the Montreal Grand Prix.
The couple, both 30, have spent the past two years living in West London.
Mr. Phillips now looks after the Royal Bank of Scotland's motor racing sponsorship while Ms. Kelly, a graduate of McGill University, is a personal assistant to broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson.
