Some of the most beautiful pieces from her late mother-in-collection law’s were passed down to Kate Middleton.

Many of Princess Diana’s iconic pieces of jewelry have been passed down to her daughters-in-law, who had an unequaled jewelry box throughout her lifetime. Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have worn sentimental jewelry from their late mother-in-law on multiple occasions, following Diana’s wishes to the letter. The Princess penned a letter before her tragic death “”I would like you to designate all of my jewelry to the portion to be held by my sons, so that their wives may receive it or utilize it in due course,” the letter stated. I’ll leave the exact split of the jewelry up to you.”
