The Queen’s clothes and jewels: Who inherits her enormous collection?

Queen Elizabeth’s $447 million fortune is set to be split among members of family following her death but royal watchers are wondering what will happen to her huge collection of clothing and jewellery

The Queen’s wardrobe will likely be split mostly between Kate Middleton and Queen Consort Camilla, according to royal experts.

Future Queen Middleton is likely to inherit a considerable number of Elizabeth’s ensembles & “the lion’s share” of her jewellery. While Middleton gets “first choice,” Camilla will get the leftovers.

However, some of her most memorable ensembles will be taken by a royal trust for preservation and future display in museums.

“I would expect some of her iconic outfits such as her Jubilee ensemble or coats and hats worn to royal weddings, would certainly be preserved for historical purposes.”

Items from Queen’s personal collection would have been passed to her family members with each chosen personally. Like any treasured heirloom, these are very special pieces

the Queen’s collection of tiaras is likely to be similarly split — with many going into a royal collection, while others will be handed down to family members.
