Queen Elizabeth might consider for Meghan Markle to obtain part of her personal wealth
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, recently celebrated her 37th birthday, her first as a member of the royal family. She has been married to Prince Harry for more than three months and we can say that she has adapted well to royal life. Her relationship with Queen Elizabeth II has prospered much more than some imagine, and through this article, we'll talk a little about the friendship between them and her possible inheritance.
A place in the Queen's heart
According to some sources, Meghan may be adapting too well to royalty. Not only has she managed to captivate many people with her way of being so natural, although breaking the protocol a little, but Queen Elizabeth seems to be fond of her.
It is said that the Queen is very fond of the newly married Duchess. According to In Touch, the Queen is considering leaving part of her fortune, which is currently valued at more than $ 485 million, in inheritance to her new granddaughter-in-law.
The testament of the Queen
According to Closer Weekly, the personal testament of the Queen is a document that remains constantly updated and that will ensure that all members of the royal family are properly served at the time it is necessary.
Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-serving ruler in the kingdom, is now 92 years old. She was crowned when she was 25 years old in June 1953, four months after the unfortunate death of her father, King George VI.
Markle and the Queen
All the followers of the royal family, and of Markle, observed with adoration the images of that first trip of Meghan accompanying the Queen to Chesire. The two of them were very happy and laughing while they shared time alone as two old friends.
Many people commented that it was something similar to the first solo appearance of Duchess Catherine and the Queen in 2011. However, that meeting between them was a year after her marriage, while the Queen only made Meghan wait a month after their wedding.
Doubts in the family
Closer Weekly claims that Prince Charles and his brother, Prince Andrew, are not very happy with the relationship between Markle and the Queen. They and other family members fear that she will get the part of the royal inheritance that belongs to them.
While Catherine and Meghan get on well, Prince Charles feels that Prince William, Prince Harry, and their wives are being favored by the Queen lately, and that may influence their daughters, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie.
The treasures of the queen
But the final decision on her inheritance and the way in which it will be granted belongs to the Queen only, although we doubt that she will have any kind of preference so marked that she excludes some member of her family in some way.
Among the objects that are part of the "Treasure of the Queen", and that is part of the value of the fortune that will be granted in inheritance to her family, are this list of objects that are known to be the most expensive of all the things that Queen Elizabeth has.
The Queen’s wardrobe It’s a unique and unprecedented display of fashion dresses. Queen’s wedding and coronation dresses, both designed by British couturier Norman Hartnell, and worn in 1947 and 1953 respectively, the pieces are described as a tour de force of craftsmanship.
Whether the Queen has a personal favorite or not, both her coronation day dress and her wedding dress are the ones that stand out the most. Those two garments are considered to cost around 1 million dollars each.
2. Stamp collection
Queen Elizabeth owns the largest stamp collection on earth, and after succeeded in making the Royal Philatelic Collection famous by putting it on exhibit, making it available for loan and using it for charities., In 2009, the former French president Sarkozy told her that he had started collecting stamps to give himself a calmer image. The Queen helped him by gifting him various masterpieces.
The collection grew in such a way that when George V died it comprised of 328 stamp albums. These so-called 'Red Albums' still contain all the stamps that George managed to get his hands on. The Royal Philatelic Collection was born and soon grew in size.
The collection started with King Edward VII. Perhaps he bought it to show off in front of his son, but in any case, he was not planning to add new stamps. George V bought rare stamps left and right, and at one point even paid £1450 for a blue 'Mauritius two pence' stamp.
3. Yoruba throne
Two tall wooden Yoruba thrones with straight backs, the arms, and legs with three stretchers, With a beaded crown on the crest rail, a red and yellow knot design on the straight split between blue and red tassels, further tassels on the seat,
They also have diamond patterns on the arms and legs and four lions on the upper surface of the gold beaded seat. The symbolism of the interlaced motifs denotes many aspects of spiritual life - power, the past, the future and respect for ancestors and descendants.
Since the eleventh century, the Yoruba people of West Africa have lived in the south-western area of what is now Nigeria and the Republic of Benin. Beadwork and royalty were closely associated in this culture, with vast quantities of beads considered a source of wealth and status.
4. Boring tunnel machine would be nice
Like giant underground factories on rails, each of the custom-made Crossrail tunneling machines had an external diameter of 7.1 meters, weighed around 1,000 tonnes and measure around 150 meters in length. The equivalent of 14 London buses end-to-end and a staggering 143 buses in weight.
One of this was named after Queen Elizabeth as a rainy day refugee. These mechanical titans are used to be named after the two Queens: Victoria was a monarch in the first age of great railway engineering projects, and Elizabeth is the monarch at the advent of this great age of railway engineering projects.
This may be the weirdest and most random gift the Queen has ever gotten in her life, but when it comes to weird stuff, she knows more than the two of us combined. But, thinking about it, where can you put a gift that is almost as big as your house? Maybe the fact she cannot present this to Meghan is even for the better.
The Queen owns several vehicles, but this three are her favorites: a Bentley State Limousine is one of them. Being the official state limousine for her majesty and was a present for her golden jubilee in 2002. The car is often used during official events and is both bullet and bomb proof.
Another of her precious cars was a 1984 Jaguar Daimler Double Six Long-Wheelbase Saloon that was custom fitted with a number of exclusive features at the time. The royal car transported eminent personalities, including The Queen, princes and princesses, and was auctioned for $40,500 in 2013.
The third car the Queen loves to own is a Range Rover queen Elizabeth was seen driving herself during the 2010 royal Windsor horse show and features a custom-made Corgi statue on the bonnet. The vehicle is valued at $400,000.
The construction on this ship began in 1952 and was launched on April 16th, 1553. During its 43-year career, the ship traveled more than 1 million nautical miles around the globe. And after the ship was decommissioned in 1997 it became a tourist attraction.
The ship has moved all around the coast and has been seen in various cities around the United Kingdom. The ship was designed as a floating palace with all the trappings of luxury from the Queen's homes installed on board including silver cutlery, golden door handles, and opulent living areas.
The boat had room for some of the queen’s cars and even had its own servants living quarters with laundry facilities and even a private hospital. The ship is more like palace floating in the sea waiting for the Queen to show up.
Her Majesty has one of the largest and possibly most expensive jewelry sets in the world. Containing the famous crown jewels, this collection includes her royal crown also known as ‘Granny’s tiara’ which is one of the most expensive assets of the Queen.
The connection also includes the Collet diamond necklace with a unique drop shaped diamond pendant of 22.48 carats, South African necklace and matching bracelet, diamond earrings, over 200-year-old gemstones, a 23.6 carat uncut diamond from Tanzania and a marvelous black colored snuff box decorated with diamonds.
Some important gifts given to the queen include the Vladamir Tiara worth close to a million pounds, the Prince Albert sapphire Brooch worth 4 million pounds and the Cullinan Jewels thought to be worth almost £50 Million pounds
She is currently the only person on earth who owns whole countries and who owns countries that are not her own domestic territory. It's thought that if a total price could be put on the land it would come in somewhere close to $33 trillion dollars.
She is thought to be one of the biggest landowners on the planet, with her current portfolio showing around 6 million acres of land or to put it into perspective, one-sixth of the world’s non-ocean surface.
I'm pretty sure when I say that only a few people in the world knew about these Queen's belongings, and although the number of objects and the valued amount are incredible, there is no way to spend not even half of it by the time of your death. It's best for the Queen to deal with it.
We know that the current relationship of the Queen and Markle is improving every day, and after seeing some of the most expensive objects that the queen has, it is interesting to think how will she grant them to her family in case of her death. Relationships within the royal family show that, despite the inherent status they possess, they remain a family that has its own decisions and situations to deal with.
