They don't move out and don't leave jewels for somebody. Property isn't entailed to British title anymore.

When did that law change. In 2013 they were still fighting a legal battle.

Edit: Read carefully the article. It's all about titles, not property.

The Law of Property Act 1925 facilitated barring the entail, but entailed estates were not abolished with it.

Law of Property Act 1925

Without making use of entails, the British aristocracy still is able to effectively preclude women from the inheritance of properties, as Marg's article illustrates. In most instances, the family home is left to the male heir to the peerage.

Quote:
Most vocal among them is Edward Lambton, 'Ned' to his friends, or the 7th Earl of Durham to readers of Debrett's. As the only son of the late Lord Lambton, the Tory minister who resigned in 1973 after being photographed in bed with a prostitute, he inherited the entirety of his father's £12m fortune, including Lambton Castle and Biddick Hall in County Durham, and Villa Cetinale in Tuscany, considered by some to be Italy's most beautiful house. As the elder Lambton spent the last 30 years of his life in Italy, under Italian law all his children are entitled to a share of the estate. Since his death in 2006, three of his daughters have been locked in a dispute with their brother, demanding their share. Just as they were preparing to settle for a payment of £1m each, negotiations broke down and Ned served a High Court writ, designed to clarify some outstanding legal issues.

But it has nothing to do with laws. British laws allow to leave all estate to daughters.

I think that Marg's post was referring to the British laws of succession to aristocratic titles, which are put as justification for bypassing daughters and leaving the family property and fortune to male heirs.

Danish New Ceremonial Events.

I read in the Biography of Princess Mary, 2005, that QM11 had introduced many new ceremonial events to the Danish National Calendar. Can anybody comment of this?
