Who will inherit the queen’s jewels- When Queen Elizabeth died on Thursday, she left behind a sizable collection of jewels, tiaras, and brooches. Some of the pieces will continue to be on display in the Tower of London as part of the Crown Jewels. Others are anticipated to be traced down to King Charles, Camilla, the queen consort, and Catherine Middleton, who was recently made Princess of Wales.
After his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away on Thursday, King Charles III gained a new title and probably also inherited her substantial jewellery, crown, and brooch collection.
Some of these treasures will continue to be included in the Crown Jewels, an exhibition of royal ceremonial artefacts at the Tower of London. The Queen’s private collection, which is made up of presents, family treasures, and things she herself has bought, is worth millions of dollars and is predicted to be carried down to the Windsor line, beginning with King Charles.
It was customary for royals to borrow Queen’s tiaras for their weddings as Kate Middleton, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice and Meghan Markle did.
Remarkably, the Queen’s personal collection includes a large number of extremely expensive gems, even though part of her jewellery, including crowns and brooches, is on display in the Tower of London. It is essential to remember that the ones on exhibit at the Tower of London belong to the Monarch and whoever is the monarch at a certain period, not to a specific person.
The Royal Collection is the largest private collection in the world and the location of a large percentage of the royal family’s extensive collection of artworks. As reported by ANI quoting the New York Post, the collection also houses the Queen’s jewels and is made up of even more than a million items, a portion of which traces its origins to Henry VIII’s reign. So, the answer to Who will inherit the queen’s jewels is that most will be inherited by King Charles, Queen Consort, Camilla, and probably Catherine Middleton.
Some of the Queen’s Jewels recently worn by Royal family Ladies
Kate Middleton was spotted in Pearl and Diamond brooch for Queen’s mourning which she wore as a tribute to the Queen. It is a beautiful brooch with three pearls embedded in diamond leaf. It was given to the Princess of Wales by Queen Elizabeth II which Queen also wore once on her 73rd birthday to a Seoul concert. Kate was seen wearing the same brooch in 2017 at 100th anniversary of Battle of Passchendaele. She also wore it one of the visits to Belgium.
Pearls are considered a sign of grief and worn by the royals since the reign of Queen Victoria.
So, Kate wore the same brooch to one of the Queen’s death processions.

Queen consort Camilla wore Queen’s Diamond thistle brooch at her prayer service on September 12 in Scotland to pay tribute to her. The brooch was gifted to Camilla by the Queen.
Meghan Markle also wore pearl and diamond button earrings to honor the Queen as the earrings were gifted to her by the Queen. She wore the same earrings on one of Queen’s processions and also at funeral. The everyday earrings were from Queen’s personal collection of jewels. Meghan received the gift in 2018 on her first solo trip with the Queen.
