If the Queen does indeed leave Meghan out by not giving her anything, "some people think it won't be out of spite, but practicality," sources shared.

Queen Elizabeth is said to have made some last-minute changes to her will before her death and it looks like the outcome favors none other than Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales. According to a report by Radar Online, Prince William's wife is expected to inherit the late monarch's pricey jewelry collection, and it is valued to be somewhere around $110 million. The Queen had been focusing on her collection since July 2022, to see who she could give out her prized possesions to. "She's been focusing on her beloved pieces and who deserves what. The whispers are that she's made some last-minute changes to her will that'll be a shocking surprise for her heirs," sources said.
It seems like the Queen's decision will piss off a few royals, now that Middleton is set to reap the benefits. The decision would probably upset Camilla, Meghan, and their partners, King Charles and Prince Harry, according to the source.
"Kate is clearly the family favorite," said sources. Reports also suggested that Camilla, who had Elizabeth's approval for her coronation as Queen Consort, was secretly jealous of Kate's relationship with the late Queen. "She'd never say it, of course, but it's one of the reasons Camilla resented Kate," sources added.
Camilla is not alone herself. Meghan and her daughter Lilibet will also be snubbed, a royal insider added. "There's a very good chance the Queen won't leave either of them any jewels of value. It's not surprising, since they're not members of the royal family anymore but it would be a real slap in the face."
When it comes to the Queen's jewels, it was said that Kate and William are "not worried" because they knew where they stood with her. "Kate and William really don't want Lilibet to be left out, even though Kate is expected to give some of the diamonds to her daughter, Princess Charlotte. As for Meghan, she's not their concern," said a royal insider.
However, if the Queen does indeed leave Meghan out by not giving her anything, "some people think it won't be out of spite, but practicality," sources shared. "Others say it would be the Queen sending a message to Meghan and Harry: You reap what you sow."
Queen Elizabeth died on September 8, 2022, at Balmoral castle. She was 96 at the time of her death. The entire world is now mourning the loss of Britain's longest-reigning monarch.
