Most of The Queen's collection is her private property, however, she certainly is likely to designate pieces as belonging to the Crown to be worn in right of it, just as Queen Mary did.

Whether those pieces then become inseparable from the Crown legally or if it's just a statement of intent to preserve them for future Queens is unknown.

She is likely to do so, but that hadn't been done yet so the Queen is free to distribute her personal jewellery collection in any way she pleases, although it is almost certain most of it will be inherited by the next Sovereign.

Diana didn't seem to complain about this lack of tiaras and jewels so I don't understand why it bothers anyone else. She always looked stunning and regal with the tiaras that were at her disposal and the modifications of necklace/choker as head band.

If she was still hear today, most likely she would've changed her jewels up a bit.

I agree, it does seem odd to get worked up about what jewels a woman who died 15 years ago did or did not wear or have access to.

There is an update about HM Queen Alexandra dying intestate on the royal sartorial website. This explains that QA did leave directions about the dispersal of her jewels. Which is ow Princess Victoria ended up with the "rundell tiara" even though the rest of the parue is still in the possession of HM the Queen.

IMO this doesn't make any sense to me, why break up a beautiful parue, and now the tiara is Gone.

Well it wasn't a 'matching' parure - the tiara was all diamonds in a Greek style. The necklace, brooch and earrings are in diamonds and pearls.
Queen Alexandra didn't even appear to wear it very often in the latter years of her life.
