Queen Elizabeth’s wealth of $447 million is set to be divided among members of her family following her death at the age of 96 earlier this month.
But royal onlookers are wondering what will happen to her vast collection of clothing and jewelry.
The emperor was noted for his exquisite style, wearing colorfully coordinated attire at local ceremonies and dazzling in expensive, elegant ball gowns at international events.
According to royal experts, the Queen’s wardrobe is likely to be mostly split between Kate Middleton and Queen consort Camilla.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said the future Queen Middleton is likely to inherit a considerable number of Elizabeth’s outfits as well as the “lion’s share” of her personal jewelry. While Middleton gets the “first choice,” Camilla will get the leftovers, she claimed.
However, some of his most memorable outfits will be taken to museums by a royal trust for preservation and future display.
Royal expert Christine Ross told the Daily Mail: “I hope that some of her iconic outfits, such as her jubilee outfits or the coats and hats worn at royal weddings, will certainly be preserved for historical purposes.”
“The Collection of Historic Royal Palaces preserves many of the clothing of Queen Victoria and Princess Diana, and Queen Elizabeth’s clothing holds just as much historical significance and interest,” she said.
Ross said: “I have no doubt that her wedding gown and coronation gown will be preserved by the Royal Collection Trust, and will be put on display frequently.”
The expert claims that the queen – who was very well aware of her own influence and historical significance – may have ordered and arranged her collection before her death.
Clothing of less historical importance is likely to be passed on to family members – and their granddaughters and great-grandchildren may have windfall benefits.
“Items from the Queen’s personal collection will have been passed on to members of her family, each of whom will be personally selected by Her Majesty. Like any treasured heirloom, these are certainly very special pieces,” said Ross. Told.
Many of the Queen’s ball gowns could be changed to suit Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, the new Princess of Wales [Middleton]Or even Princess Charlotte and Lillibet in the future,” she added.
Meanwhile, The Post previously reported that the Queen’s collection of tiaras will be divided similarly – many going to the royal collection, while others will be handed out to family members.
As for the other pieces of jewelry, it appears that Middleton – crowned the new Princess of Wales – may come with the bulk of the pieces.
“I envision that Her Majesty’s personal jewelry will be passed on to various members of her family. The Princess of Wales will receive the lion’s share as a future Queen,” Seward told the Daily Mail.
However, Queen Consort Camilla, daughter-in-law of the late monarch, will not go empty-handed.
“There are pieces that will remain for the use of the reigning monarch’s wife – in this case, Camilla. She would need a large collection to support her constitutional role,” Seward said.
