I would have to actually see Kate or Meghan in a larger piece to see if they could carry it off or not. Kate did seem to be able to wear the necklace (I forget offhand exactly what the piece was) she wore to the recent state dinner.
Queen Alexandra's Diamond and Pearl Necklace...that's what Kate had on.

I think Kate is tall enough and has enough presence as she's matured to wear big pieces (I mean that QM Lover's Knot is not a small piece) if they are the right design.

Catherine should wear better dresses and most importantly: to walk upright and not with slouching shoulders. "Here I am, The Duchess of Cambrige!". The grey dress during the Dutch State Banquet and the red dress during the Chinese state banquet did not help Catherine in combination with grand jewels. But that is difficult because taste lies in the eye of the beholder.

The blue/grey dress from this week, combined with the pearl and diamonds (earring/tiara/necklace) was a gorgeous look.

This is why royal foundations have been set up by other royal families to remove the financial risks involved. Giving them to the crown, and using only when needed would make more sense.
Thats right, Inheritance Tax or Death Duty is payable on all assets, including cash and real estate. Irrespective of how William and Harry divide up the jewellery and assets between them, they would broadly be equal in value. So to that extent, inheritance tax is a moot point from the perspective of Harry's children. They will need to pay on whatever they inherit, be it cash, real estate, art or jewels.

I have never understood why Britain continues with this disgusting Tax. Australian states abolished Death Duties/Inheritance tax in 1979.
It is bad enough people are dealing with the loss of a loved one without having to deal with money worries as well.

The tax is designed to deal with historic inequalities in wealth, and stop these inequalities continuing generation after generation. It does not impact the "inheritance" of property from husband to wife and vice-versa, it only impacts inter-generational transfer of wealth.

We'll just have to watch and see what pieces appear in public. Keeps us on our toes.

Given the fact that so many of the items were gifts to The Princess of Wales from foreign heads of state & governments it would be a dangerous task to start selling things off. Serious offence could be taken.
Put it this way - as an Australian I would be very displeased if Her Majesty was to suddenly sell off the Wattle Brooch that was given to her on her tour here in the 1950's. Same goes with the Innaminka Opal.

Not only do I think the idea of selling her jewels ridiculous, I think yuor point is very valid. She received a fair amount of jewellery in her role as then consort to the Prince of Wales, and those items cannot be sold. They will need to remain with the family, or ideally become a part of the Royal Collection.

Placing her estate in the Royal Collection is the best solution in my opinion. That would guarantee none of the items would be sold or lost in future generations.

I think those jewels are already placed in the collection.

I don't think there is any need for her estate to be placed in the Royal Collection, just the specific pieces of jewellery that she had received as then consort to the PoW.

Jewels that were privately owned should be free to be distributed between William and Harry, as they might agree.

The bottom line is that the jewellery belongs to William and Harry and how they decide to dispose of it is entirely their choice. The jewels that were gifted to Diana remained hers to dispose of how she chose. She chose to leave them to her sons for their future wives.

My updated suggestions for splitting:

CATHERINE
Sapphire choker
Saudi sapphire parure - though this may now be with the Royal Collection
Collingwood Pearl drop earrings (already used)
Pearl and diamond bracelet (already used)
Crescent shaped diamond earrings with pearl drop (used by Catherine at BAFTA 2019)
Ruby earrings with pearl drop (Pearl drop rumoured to be used by Catherine for BAFTA 2019)

MEGHAN
Emerald and diamond earrings and matching bracelet
Pearl and diamond pendant earrings from Qatar - though these may now be with the Royal Collection
Omani sapphire suite - though these may now be with the Royal Collection
Aquamarines: Ring, bracelet with pearls, drop earrings
Gold bracelet (already used in Australia)
Butterfly earrings (already used in Australia)
Gold Cartier Tank watch

The emerald and diamond earrings and Art Deco bracelet are high on my list to see again - I am hoping that Meghan has been gifted them as we already know Kate has a modern emerald set.


Another piece that would be interesting to see is the Prince of Wales diamond necklace - (often used with an emerald pendant attached) I hope Kate gets this piece when she is likely to be the next Princess of Wales

As the POW Kate will have access to scads of jewelry along with whatever William got for his share of Diana's jewelry...and some of that is loose stones so we may see something later and not even know (unless they tell us) they were from Diana's collection.

No one knows of course and we may never see either of them wear it. it could be saved for one of their children (or their spouse)..it could be taken apart and re-set.

I think if anyone ends up with it, it will be Kate. It is more her style and stone color.

I suspect Kate will get that since she has the sapphire earrings and ring. I long to see that choker again. It is stunning!

I have to laugh when people assume a stone is someone's stone or something will go to them because it's the same stone as her engagement ring. If that's the case, Princess Anne owns sapphire more than anyone in BRF.

Diana's jewels will show up when they show up. Although, with the limited amount of formal events these days, it could take awhile.
