Queen Elizabeth’s Private Jewelry Collection Could Be Passed On To Camilla, Kate Middleton

According to Hello! magazine, Queen Elizabeth’s private jewelry collection is comprised of approximately 300 pieces of jewelry from her brooches, necklaces, her rings, and more.

When she’s not wearing her jewelry, they are carefully stored inside the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace. And now that her eldest son has been proclaimed king, he will have an access to his late mother’s jewelry collection.

King Charles III and his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles can choose pieces of jewelry that the latter might want to wear. Prince William’s wife, Kate Middleton will also inherit some of the queen’s jewelry.

Queen Elizabeth’s Crown Jewels Will Continue To Be On Display At The Tower Of London

However, the queen also has an entire jewelry collection that forms part of the Crown Jewels. These are pieces that are not part of her private collection and are therefore on display inside the Tower of London. The collection is also made up of all kinds of jewelry like brooches, tiaras, rings, and more.

Since these pieces belong to the state, they will most likely remain on display even after the queen’s passing. They cannot be passed down to future generations because they are not part of the queen’s private collection.

Princess Diana And Meghan Markle Also Inherited Jewelry From Queen Elizabeth

Fashion expert Suzy Menkes previously told about the queen’s private and public royal jewels.

“The essence of royal jewels is that they are both private and public – a mix of personal and regal. Far from being stuffy signals of a long-gone era, they are designed to pass the symbol of monarchy from one generation to the next,” she told Vogue.

Other than Camilla and Middleton, two other members of the royal family who inherited jewelry from the queen were Princess Diana and Meghan Markle. After her death, the jewelry that Princess Diana received from King Charles and the queen was passed on to her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. The two men then passed on the jewelry to their wives.

When Prince Harry and Markle got engaged five years ago, the former revealed that the ring that he gave the latter had little diamonds on either side from his mother’s jewelry collection. This way, Princess Diana could be part of their lives even if she’s no longer around.

When Prince William and Middleton got engaged, the former gave the latter Princess Diana’s blue sapphire ring. The huge rock was also passed on from one generation to the next, which is what’s commonly done by members of the royal family.
