The royal orders and medals of the late George, Duke of Cambridge, are up for auction:
Royal Orders and Medals from the collection of George, Duke of Cambridge (1819-1904), King George III’s Grandson | Sotheby's

Very impressive orders and detailing. Love the designs.

Wow, they are beautiful. Presumably they were left to George's illegitimate son, George William, and his brother Adolphus's descendants. What a pity they've decided to sell the collection. It would be great, as there is now a new Duke of Cambridge, if the BRF could buy a couple of these.

Since they were sold together, they were most likely inherited by one single line, not between separate descendents. George had 4 grandchildren between his 2 eldest sons (he had a 3rd son). 3 granddaughters and 1 grandson. But his only great-grandchildren were in the female line. George William only had one grandchild, a grandson Victor, from his daughter Mabel. Victor had 2 children. Adolphus had one daughter Olga. Olga had 3 kids, and at least her youngest daughter had numerous heirs.

I don't see why they would spend money to buy the orders for William. There is no real link between the men other then a shared title. It isn't like buying heirloom jewels that would be worn in the family.

Olga's granddaughter Jane Scrivener died in 2014 so maybe it's her heirs that are selling the items.
