No . Elisabeth received jewels from her Grand Father Emperor François Joseph of Austria. But all sold !
Princess Stephanie of the Belgians died not die in poverty.

In his book Koninklijke Juwelen, Christophe Vachaudez wrote on page 68 that Princess Stéphanie was repeatedly in financial problems and therefore sold her valuables, bit by bit. The few jewels which remained and the rest of her valuables were completely looted by the Soviet Army when they invaded her husband's castle in 1945 (see the castle in present state). After this the Princess was completely depending on the hospitality of the Abbey of Pannonhalma.

A stunning and regal tiara. Just amazing.
I often wonder why Queen Elisabeth left it to Leopold in her will and not her his eldest grandson, Baudouin.Had that happened it would be still with Belgian RF and gracing the head of a queen.

That is the right question !! we will never know its answer.
Princess Lilian wore it once for a austrian Royal Event and then nevermore.
How did King Baudouin allow its sale at the Auction.

Were there good relations between the queen mother and Princess Lillian?

I believe she was happy with Lilian as she was worried about her son King Leopold III becoming depressed, all alone at Laeken. Lilian was able to cheer him up. I am not sure if she was happy with the marriage itself though, as she still believed in equal marriages. But Leopold could do little wrong in her view.

He was not informed.
The tiara was noticed anonymous.
But Vincent Meylan was informed and wrote the Seller was Princess de Rethy et she was so angry.
King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola were not found of jewels.
The King never gave jewels for Princess Paola and Princess Astrid's Weddings .

What a pity King Leopold did not just simply pass them onto his son and keep them in the family.

The late Princess de Réthy had an impressive jewel collection of her own.
