Re: Duke of Gloucester sells his 2500 acre estate with historic manor house
Very wise point, but isn't auctioned items or the sale price of them not also subject to Her Majesty's now His Majesty's tax and revenue charges? The Gloucesters would make a killing though if one looks at the prices fetched at auction sales for historic and top tier jewelry.
I donít think the 300 items had anything to do with the Gloucesters. I saw a mention of a curated collection. I took that to mean that either the items being sold were brought together for the sale or that they were stock of Windsor antiques. I think it would make sense to sell the jewellery now so that trusts can be created to avoid tax rather than leave jewellery to be sold later.
