Queen Elizabeth - she was not only a very rich woman in terms of reputation, but also in a financial sense. But what happens to her possessions after her death, which shook the whole world on September 8, 2022?
Queen Elizabeth's estate remains under wraps
Officially, the public will probably not know for the time being exactly what the plans for the Queen's legacy look like. Your estate will remain sealed for 90 years and may then only be opened in camera, as required by law, or rather tradition.
Starting with King George III. In 1822, it is still common today for a will to be sealed after the death of a senior member of the royal family, to protect dignity and privacy, to the President of the High Court's Family Department. This was also the case with Prince Philip, † 99. As a rule, this application is also granted, only in rare cases is it successfully contested.
The Queen owned possessions, jewellery, and estates such as Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, which are property of the Crown and automatically passed to King Charles, 73, on her death. Even the personal belongings and jewelry are believed to be largely bequeathed to Charles. His wife Queen Camilla, 75, and daughter-in-law Catherine, Princess of Wales, 40, are also said to receive individual pieces.
As for corgis Sandy and Muick, it has previously been reported that Prince Andrew, 62, and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, 62, will be looking after them in the future. The Queen got the two four-legged friends from Andrew and his family last year.
