Prince Harry (opens in new tab) and Meghan Markle's (opens in new tab) daughter Lilibet could inherit some of the most famous jewellery in the royal family

  • Members of the royal family have been known to pass down expensive and sentimental jewellery pieces to younger generations whether for a one-off occasion or as a sentimental gift 
  • While most royals must return the jewellery borrowed from older generations, Lilibet Windsor is set to inherit £410,000 of jewels from her mother, Meghan, and grandmother, Princess Diana.
  • In other royal news (opens in new tab)Prince George's (opens in new tab) education is set to be very different to the average nine year olds (opens in new tab)

While the most eye catching jewels worn by members of the royal family tend to be the tiaras and crowns atop of their heads (opens in new tab), the various princesses and duchesses are the owners of some seriously impressive and historic jewels. Whether they hold sentimental value and have been passed down through generations, or they are the latest luxury addition to the jewellery box, among them all is an eye-wateringly expensive collection.

Many of these pieces will one day be inherited by younger members of the family, such as Kate Middleton (opens in new tab) and Prince William's (opens in new tab) daughter, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

Both Charlotte and Lilibet are in line to inherit not only some of their mother's jewellery (opens in new tab), but some pieces that previously belonged to Diana, Princess of Wales, who was known for her stunning collection of classic jewels. 

According to Jewellery experts at Steven Stone, the amount that Lilibet could one day inherit amounts to a staggering £410,000 - so what is the young royal expected to receive?

Something that Meghan would almost certainly pass down to her daughter is her £150,000 Cartier bracelet that she wore on her wedding day to Prince Harry. The bracelet is made up of 104 brilliant cut diamonds and 52 baguette cut diamonds. 

Leading Diamond Expert, Maxwell Stone told The Mirror, “Worth £150,000, Meghan’s stunning bracelet is composed of 18K white gold, set with 104 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling 4.50 carats, and 52 baguette-cut diamonds totalling 5.61 carats.

"Worn by Meghan on her wedding day, this would be a heart-warming piece for Lilibet to inherit that she could possibly pair with her own wedding dress in the future.”
