Diana reportedly left her collection to her son's future wives, the Duchess of Cambridge and now Markle, who will be known as the Duchess of Sussex.
But it's not that simple. With some pieces going back into the Queen's estate, and others being sold at auction. Scroll through and see what happened to Diana's most iconic pieces from her jewelry collection.
Who inherited the jewels?
After the beloved princess passed away, Princes William and Harry were left three quarters of her £21 million estate.
In a special "letter of well wishes," The Sun reports, Diana explained that she was leaving her jewelry to her sons' future spouses.
The letter read: "I would like you to allocate all of my jewelry to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it. I leave the exact division of the jewelry to your discretion."
Not all of her iconic pieces were subject to her wishes, however, as some were on loan from the Royal collection, while others were not included in her estate.prevnext
