I was searching for more information on the Number 7 - Lady Mount Stephen diamond necklace, but couldn't find Beth's press article.
Does anyone know the extent of Lady Mount Stephen's bequest to Queen Mary?
In link immediately below we are told: "In 1897 Lord Mount Stephen married Gian Tufnell, who had been Lady-in-waiting to Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess of Teck, the mother of Queen Mary. She was a lifelong friend and confidant of Queen Mary and she and Lord Mount Stephen regularly entertained the Queen at Brocket Hall. She bequeathed her collection of jewels and her diamond tiara to her." https://berryhillsturgeon.com/Archives/Canada/MountStephen/MountStephen.html
Another article linked below says of Lady Mount Stephen: "She remained close to the Royal Family and bequeathed many jewels to the Queen and to the Royal Collections on her death."
I wonder how much truth there is in these reports
