Queen’s 300 piece jewellery collection to be handed down amongst family members


Many of the Queen’s jewels and possessions actually belong to the Crown itself.

While some possessions pass directly to King Charles, others may become personal gifts to other royals.

In this instance they would have gone straight to the new monarch, such is the case with Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

However, Balmoral was owned outright by the Queen, meaning she could decide who it would go to.

Much of her jewels were also part of the Royal Collection and would therefore be inherited by Charles, reported Hello! magazine.

Princess Beatrice was spotted upset at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth on Monday as she left St George’s Chapel at Windsor Chapel.

Royal ladies such as Camilla, Queen Consort, the Princess of Wales and the Countess of Wessex are likely to be gifted items from Her Majesty’s personal collection.

It is believed that Her Majesty owned 300 pieces of jewellery, including 98 brooches and 46 necklaces.

Other personal items will be distributed amongst the family, similarly to Prince Philip when he passed away in 2021.

The Queen’s beloved corgis Muick and Sandy will be rehomed with Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

Her middle son gave her two puppies Muick and Fergus when Prince Philip was hospitalised to cheer her up.

Sandy was then given to her on what would have been the Duke’s 100th birthday in June.

It is unknown where the Queen’s beloved pony Emma will live, but reports suggest she may be rehomed with equestrian-loving Princess Anne or Zara Tindall.
