The items belonged to them and obviously no one in the family raised a royal eyebrow once it was disclosed that they would all share in the sale. I wonder how many items came out of the home they had to sell? Can you imagine having to store this stuff? No thanks. I don't think I've ever seen a royal lady wear a jewel that had belonged to the DoW. Correct me if I'm wrong.

There have been suggestions that Princess Michael of Kent received some pieces from the Duchess of Windsor, and every now and then there's a comment about a piece of jewelry looking "Wallis-like."

Princess Michael has worn the ruby brooch that belonged to the Duchess of Windsor quite often. And of course there are those gorgeous emerald earrings that she also wears quite frequently, but I'm not 100 % sure if they belonged to Wallis. I would think so, though.

Thank you for "fleshing out" my reply Dierna23. I couldn't think of any of the jewels in particular that Princess Michael had worn.
