What will King Charles III Inherit? Queen Elizabeth II Dies: Diamonds, Jewels, Cars, Land, Horses, and Royal Swans were left

What will King Charles III Inherit? Queen Elizabeth II Dies: Diamonds, Jewels, Cars, Land, Horses, and Royal Swans were left: Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, was known for her standard of living and enjoyment of life. One of Britain’s richest women, Queen Elizabeth inherited palaces, royal crown jewels, and estates. She also owned many unique and unexpected items, and now after her death, all these items have been passed on to the new king, Charles III.


In a 1953 interview with The New York Times, royal designer Sir Norman Hartnell said, “The Queen and the Queen Mother do not want to be fashion setters.” It is a job for other people who have nothing else important to do.’

It was the year of the Queen’s coronation, but throughout these years she adopted a style of dress that became a standard and example for female leaders in the Western world. She wore two-inch high heels and knee-length hemline skirts to avoid dress breakdowns.

She also used to wear hats that were small in diameter but large in size. The Queen is rarely seen outside her palace without a hat, scarf, or tiara. Their scarves or hats were mostly dull colors, often pale yellow or coral. The style of clothing became not only her identity but also a model of powerful women’s clothing.

Blue is believed to have been the Queen’s favorite color and she often wore it while attending sporting events. As the queen is now dead, it is not clear where her clothes will be kept. The costumes of other popular royals such as Queen Victoria and Diana, Princess of Wales can be seen in many museums.


Of course, along with her dresses, the most popular in her wardrobe were her handbags (purses). She always carried a handbag that matched her outfit during official events and engagements. Even in her last official photo, she is carrying a handbag.

Her handbags were made by the British brand ‘Lunar’ and it is said that she had around 200 long-striped handbags to keep her hands in style when needed.

“The Queen was a wonderful woman with a charismatic personality,” says Gerald Bodmi, owner of Launer, the Queen’s handbag maker. “She told me on many occasions that she never considered herself completely ready without a handbag,” she told the BBC.

There have been speculations about the items in her handbag for a long time. Her handbag always contained a folded five-pound note for a donation to the church, some observers claim that her handbag also contained lipstick and a small glass.

While others say that along with these items, there was also a mobile phone to call their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

It is said that the Queen also used her handbag to communicate with her staff in signs, for example, if she placed her handbag on the table during dinner, it would be a sign for her staff. The message would be that she wants the event to end now.

Swans and Dolphins

All white swans in England and Wales without a mark of ownership are owned by the royal family, according to a law drawn up by the Royal Society for the Preservation of Birds. Every year, a count of swans is held on the banks of the River Thames in London, known as Upping.

The history of this numbering of swans dates back to the 12th century when the royal ruler claimed ownership of all unmarked swans in open water to ensure their supply at banquets and feasts. David Barber, who affixes the royal ownership stamp on swans, says, “Of course, swans are no longer eaten, but this process is done for information and conservation.”

He served as a royal sealer on swans for the Queen for 30 years until her death. Similarly, the dolphins found up to three miles offshore are also the property of the royal ruler. The royal ownership of dolphins dates back to 1324 when Edward II was king.

This law states that ‘dolphins and sturgeons (a type of fish) found in the sea or anywhere within the boundaries of the kingdom are the property of the king.’

This law is still in force today and whales and dolphins are known as ‘royal fish’. After the death of his mother, the new King Charles III inherited many of the country’s dolphins and swans.


Much has been made of the Queen’s attachment to dogs. It is said that he owned more than 30 Corgi dogs in his lifetime. But he also loved another animal and that was the horse. It is believed that they had many horses.

The Queen learned to ride on Peggy, a Shetland pony, which was given to her by her grandfather George V on her fourth birthday. He later inherited the Royal Stables, a racehorse breeding center at Sandringham. Where many horses were born made them winners in horse racing.

Royal Stables trainer Sir Michael Stott, who has trained more than 100 race-winning horses, said it was an honor to work with the Queen, and his knowledge of horses, keen awareness, and desire to be the best. I never felt pressured to train horses for them.’

Queen Elizabeth often gave her horses names that conveyed a clear message, such as Duty Bound, Constitution, and Discretion.

Broadcaster Claire Balding, whose brother, father, and grandfather have all trained the Queen’s horses, said one example of the Queen’s horse awareness was that she never perfumed the horses when visiting the stables. Don’t let young horses get nervous.

As a horse owner, she won four out of five British Classic races.


For official engagements, the Queen used carriages or a specially designed chauffeur-driven Bentley car. And choosing a Land Rover whenever possible, the Queen and her husband Prince Philip both enjoyed driving. The royal couple loved cars made by Jaguar and Land Rover.

Before becoming Queen, Princess Elizabeth also volunteered as a lorry driver and mechanic during World War II. She also occasionally drove herself using her driving skills to entertain her guests. In September 1998, the Queen invited the then Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah, to lunch at Balmoral. He was later invited on a tour of the 20,000-hectare royal estate.

According to the memoirs of former British diplomat Sherard Cowper Coles, the initially reluctant King Abdullah agreed to sit with him in the passenger seat of the car. He was surprised when the Queen took the driver’s seat and drove him through the Scottish Highlands while talking. King Abdullah got a little worried about this and asked the queen to slow down.

All this happened long before women were allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia. British press reports estimate that the Queen’s cars are worth more than $10 million, and she owned more than 30 Land Rovers during her lifetime.


The Sunday Times Rich List estimates the Queen’s personal wealth at £370 million. Much of this has come from real estate, jewelry, stamps, and artwork. The Queen also owns many other royal residences and extensive government land. These royal statuses cannot be sold. These include London’s Regent Street and Berkshire Ascot horse racecourse.

This royal land also includes ownership of the seabed up to 12 nautical miles at sea. This means that many companies building offshore wind farms pay royalties to the Queen. In 2017, the 15% cut in profits from the Queen’s royal estates was increased to 25% for the next decade. This was to pay for the renovation of Buckingham Palace.

A family heirloom

Queen Elizabeth also inherited personal items from her predecessors, which are preserved in the Royal Collection. Among them is Queen Victoria’s wedding dress.

Queen Victoria is credited with popularizing the white wedding dress. A white wedding couple is considered a symbol of romanticism and purity. The Royal Collection also includes armor worn by Henry VIII.

He disagreed with the Pope and made the Church of England independent and appointed himself as its head. Since then this role has been continuously given to royal rulers.


When many of us think of royalty, we think of glittering gold and diamond jewels.

Britain’s colonial empire was the largest in the history of mankind, enabling the royal family to acquire some of the finest diamonds. The 530.2 carat Star of Africa diamond brought from Africa is the world’s largest transparent cut. It is installed in a part of the queen’s scepter.

Similarly, the famous Zamana Koh Noor diamond was obtained by the British from Punjab in the subcontinent in 1849. It was initially worn as a brooch by Queen Victoria. It was later decorated in Queen Alexandra’s crown and again in 1937 in the crown for the Queen Mother’s coronation.

In addition to the crown jewels, Queen Elizabeth also had a large personal collection of precious stones and metals. However, the Queen was often seen wearing pearl necklaces and bands which became part of her signature style.


Queen Elizabeth was expected to hand over almost all of her jewels to her son, King Charles. But royal observers have predicted that two jewels in her collection will be buried with her.

Lisa Levenson, head of communications at the Natural Diamond Council, believes it will be her Welsh gold wedding band and a pair of pearl earrings.
