Re: Duke of Gloucester sells his 2500 acre estate with historic manor house
I hope they will keep the historical jewels.
They have Indeed a lot of tiaras!!!
When I saw this subject as a news item I immediately suspected that the Gloucesters jewels will not be too far behind especially when the news item stated that over 300 items from the home were also auctioned and that sale of house items alone garnered over a million British pounds.
The Gloucester jewels have been a subject of great interest on this board as well as others, and they are top tire jewels once owned by the great jewel Queen, Queen Mary.
I wonder what those jewels would fecth if they go on the auction market?
I believe a sale of the Gloucester jewels would surpass the late Princess Margaret's auction sale and could well be more that the late Elizabeth Taylor's jewels as the Gloucesters have a bigger jewel collection than either of the two individuals mentioned and the six or so tiaras alone in the Gloucesters keep could easily fetch 2 or more million a peice.
Are the Gloucesters acknowledging the era of Royal statehood has now passed with the death of the last true and great Queen?
Will they not give first refusal if they decide to auction the jewels to the new King Charles or maybe other European royals before they place the jewels on the open markets?
What do others think?
