On 8th September, the world received earth-shattering news. British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II had passed away that afternoon at age 96. She had been residing at her Scottish estate at the time. Celebrities and other influential personalities were quick to leave their condolences via socials.
Since then, the world has been focused on the British royal family’s affairs. However, one of the biggest questions is about the Queen’s will. There’s no denying that she has amassed quite a fortune. But, some people are certain said fortune will not be going to her daughter-in-law and great daughter-in-law, current Queen Consort Camilla and Meghan Markle!
After 70 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth II reportedly has about $500 million worth of assets from investments, art, jewels and real estate. The Queen supposedly arranged for the distribution of her wealth as early as July 2022. However, sources now claim that the Queen made some last-minute changes to her will. The source added that the changes would be “shocking news” for her heirs.
“In the Queen’s mind, Kate is clearly her favourite great daughter-in-law in the royal family,” the source supposedly stated. “So, it is very likely that the Queen will (pass) her collection to Kate (while) Camilla and Meghan will get nothing.” The source also claimed that the supposed favouritism was a source of tension between Camilla and Kate.
Additionally, they stated that Meghan’s exclusion was due to her and Harry’s decision to leave the royal family. The source alleged that it was a message from the Queen to Meghan saying: “You sow what you reap.” However, Kate supposedly is not keen on side-lining Meghan’s daughter Lilibet and may presumably “make arrangements” for her. “But for Meghan,” the source purportedly said. “I don’t think they care at all.”
The British royal family has had its disagreements with their in-laws, some of which were made public and have gone viral previously. However, obvious effects of their disputes since the Queen’s passing have yet to be seen.
Unfortunately, the truth of the Queen’s last will and testament will only be known to the royal family as her full wealth and will are to be kept private. This is supposedly in line with the British monarchs’ traditions and legal reasons.
