'Priceless' Princess Diana heirloom 'to go to granddaughter Charlotte' instead of Lilibet Diana

PRINCESS Charlotte is in line to inherit one of Princess Diana’s most iconic heirlooms, instead of Lilibet Diana, it is claimed.

A number of pieces could be passed down to six-year-old Charlotte when she is old enough, including the breathtaking Spencer Tiara, which Diana wore on her wedding day.

According to GoodToKnow, Charlotte will get the “pick of the palace jewels” as her dad Prince William is second in line to the throne and she is his only daughter. 

Currently Diana's youngest brother Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, has the tiara, and Charlotte may have to wait until her wedding day to wear it herself. 

A palace source is said to have told the publication: “William is quite aware the earl has daughters of his own, but the two have agreed that Diana’s iconic piece belongs to her first granddaughter.”

Australian magazine New Idea claimed Charlotte knows about the tiara and can't wait to one day try it on.

An insider said: "Lotte knows all about her ‘Granny Diana’ – after all, Diana is one of her middle names. She’s also seen pictures of her wearing the tiara."

The Spencer Tiara was in Diana’s family for almost a century before she wore it on her 1981 wedding day to Prince Charles. 

Traditionally, royal brides wait until their wedding day before first wearing the piece. 

Meghan Markle borrowed a tiara from the Queen for her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry – the Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau.

Meanwhile, Kate wore the Cartier Halo tiara which features over 1,000 diamonds for her 2011 wedding.

Previously, Princess Charlotte was reported to be worth a staggering £3.8billion.

And it looks like Kate and Prince William’s only daughter could be the biggest earner of their brood, as she’s worth more than brothers Prince George and Prince Louis.

The whopping figure has been estimated by Reader’s Digest, who also found Prince George to be worth £2.7billion – a billion less than his younger sister.
