The legacy of some emeralds, the trigger for Felipe's will from Edinburgh to be secret for 90 years

When Philip de Greece and Denmark married in 1947 to the then Princess Isabel de Windsor the couple became one of the most media of the time since five years later he was crowned reigns after the death of his father, King Jorge VI. At that time, Isabel II asked her for just one thing to her husband, a handsome prince of story, with blonde hair, 1,83 of stature and relatives linked to the Nazis: "I only ask you loyalty, no fidelity".

And he told him. He represented the monarchy with sobriety and between his sheets, Lady Penny Brabourne, the Duchess of Abercorn (also lover of his uncle Louis Mountbatten), the actress Pat Kirkwood, the singer Hélène Cordet and the SocialiteMagdalena Nelson of Blaquier, among many others. There were rumors of illegitimate children and homosexual relationships. But until now nothing proven. The death of it, at 99 years last April, took endless secrets.

And there will still be expected to wait more, since Judge Andrew McFarlane of the Superior Court of Great Britain has decreed that Felipe de Edinburgh will remain private for 90 years in a safe with the intention of safeguarding the dignity of Isabel II, which is currently the most longeva monarch on the planet. When the time comes, it will be judged if it is necessary to make public these last provisions that they had a precedent with the death in 1910 of Francis de Teck, Father of Future Reina María, wife of Jorge V, grandfather of Isabel II.

Many already wonder what those pages contain because and as Michael L. Nash published in Book Royal Wills in Britain from 1509 to 2008, Francisco was so sweaten that he read some of the most valuable emeralds of his treasure to his lover, La Condesa of Kilmorey. Those jewelry were the favorite of María de Teck.

Throughout history, only one exception has been made and went with Lady Di, since after his death in 1997 he was not part of the royal family. His children, princes Guillermo and Enrique, inherited 21 million pounds (11.9 million after paying taxes), as well as valuable diamond jewelry and other precious stones that have looked into endless Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Some British media have published that Isabel II has been able to inherit between 10 and 30 million pounds since in this way it is elusive in a legal basis to pay the succession tax.
