While the late Queen Elizabeth II might have had a vast collection of jewelry, separate from the Crown Jewels, there are some pieces that might be more iconic than others. And while you might picture the queen with a crown on her head, the piece of jewelry that many of us associate with the queen was her three strand pearl necklace.
Looking back at any number of photographs of Queen Elizabeth II and her three strand pearl necklace is often in the picture. Whether it was for state visits, meeting dignataries, or other work as the queen, there were many times when her pearls could be seen around her neck.
A gift from her father, King George VI, they not only held a lot of sentimental value, but also a very hefty price tag as well. In fact, it said that the three strand pearl necklace has an estimate worth of just over $1 million!
But which member of the royal family actually inherited these beloved pearls from Queen Elizabeth II?
Who inherited Queen Elizabeth's pearl necklace?
According to Showbiz Cheatsheet, it turns out that the queen's daughter, Princess Anne, ended up with this iconic piece of jewlery. And considering the shared love of pearls between mother and daughter, it makes perfect sense.
Of course, it should come as no surprise to fans of the royal family or Princess Anne that she was the one who inherited the three strand pearl necklace as she has actually been seen wearing it a few times since her mother's passing.
Not only has Princess Anne been seen with the necklace on after a trip to New York City, but there have been a few other occasions where the Princess Royal was seen with her mother's necklace on. And we love that for so many reasons, most especially because it is a reminder of the late queen and the bond that she shared with her daughter.
