Princess Charlotte set to inherit one of Princess Dianas favourite heirlooms

While Princess Diana would be a grandmother to five children now, one in particular is expected to inherit something very special from the late Royal.

Kate Middleton and Prince William's daughter Princess Charlotte is reported to be in line to receive Diana's family tiara, which also happened to be her favourite.

The Spencer tiara has been in the family since the 1930s, and it's believed that the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be the next owner.

Some royal fans were left confused why the bejewelled headpiece will not go to Prince Harry’s daughter Lilibet.

However, being the daughter of the direct heir to the throne, Charlotte is higher up on the inheritance list.

Talks are already believed to have taken place in which the palace confirmed that the now six-year-old would have 'her pick of the royal jewels' once her father becomes King.

Charlotte is said to be "aware" of the discussions and is said to be "giddy with excitement" about inheriting the "treasure".

An insider told New Idea: "Lottie 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".

"Charlotte is more than aware that she's a princess, and she's already got plastic tiaras and gowns to play dress-ups in. It's very cute."

Princess Diana famously wore the tiara to her 1981 wedding to Prince Charles and other special occasions, including a state dinner in Brisbane, Australia, in 1983.

It was designed by Gerard using several gifts given to the Spencers.

The central floral piece was given as a present to Lady Cynthia Hamilton on her wedding to the future 7th Earl Spencer, Lady Diana's grandfather.

It was worn by each of Diana's sisters at each of their weddings and her brother's wife on their big day.

Celia McCorquodale, the daughter of Diana's oldest sister Sarah, wore the tiara to her wedding in 2018.

In fact, it is a rite of passage for royal brides to wear one, and wearing it beforehand is prohibited.

While there's no official value for the piece, a similar tiara from the Spencer family with 800 cut diamonds recently sold for £162,000.
