He and Margaret divorced in 1978. None of HIS belongings should have been in her care by 2002. Besides, there was nothing in the catalogues that belonged to him. Everything was either a joint wedding present (which Margaret kept in the divorce) or a personal belonging of hers/

The death taxes were around 3 million pounds (roughly $5.5 million).

You're most welcome, I was wondering if anyone would 'get' it.

Here's a link to Hello!. It's the first mention of Linley's 'heavy heart' that I have seen. Poor dear.:p Sixth paragraph.

I wasn't referring to HIS items in her care but rather to HIS items being inherited by his children in the future.

His items aren't going to sell as much. This auction has been successful because of the royal provenance. Snowdon isn't royal, so it's unlikely as many people would be attracted. Plus, he's got four children that will inherit, so there's no telling how much David and Sarah would get.

You might want to check bbcnews.com. On the UK section, they should have some info. Plus christies.com might have some updates.

From ELMUNDO.Es

CRAZY AMOUNTS BY JEWELS OF THE CROWN

The jewels of deceased princess Margareth, Queen of England sister, attracted a multitude of buyers during the auction that surpassed widely the prognoses. Luxurious works of art in jewelry like the worn in her wedding, clocks decorated with diamonds, necklaces, clasps and ring were able to reunite to hammer blow almost 15 million euros, that goes to hands of the princess' heirs, deceased in February of 2002. Just the Tiara, that resembles a Queen's Crown and that Margareth wore at her wedding, changed of hands by 926,400 pounds sterling (near 1.35 million euros). (Photo: AFP)


I found this picture really beautiful, and the Tiara left me speachless.



Enjoy :)!

i read on Christie, that the tiara was acquired by Queen Mum for Princess Margaret, not acquired by the princess herself.

Seems likely we'll never know for sure who originally bought the Poltimore - every source seems to give a different story!

In PM's biography which she collaborated on with Christopher Warwick, I believe it says that the tiara was"acquired for princess Margaret"- which doesn't necessarily mean it was bought by her mother- but rather with family monies for the princess. (This was after the death of George VI)

When it is designated that auction proceeds go to charity only (which I know is not the case w/this one), do you think that affects the bidding? Are people more willing to bid or spend more if they know the money is going to charity, or do you think they don't care, they just want the item?

According to article in Independent lord Linley didnt' raise his low profil in press by selling so much valuables object belonging to his mother....

http://news.independent.co.uk/people...cle1090134.ece

Different newspaper but the same subject-split between Lord Linley and his family about auction

What I meant was we may never know how the Poltimore came into the Princess Margaret's possession...i.e. if she bought it, if The Queen bought it, etc. :)

I have to be the devil's advocate again. How is Linley supposed to avoid taking advantage of his royal lineage? (This is the same problem the Wessexes encountered, until they gave up on their personal dreams.) But, as Princess Margaret observed, Linley is NOT royal, he just happens to be a relative. Maybe it's better for him to float through life as a socialite?

Does anyone know if this tiara that Lady Sarah Chatto is wearing at her wedding was part of Margaret's collection? :)
