The Royal Family do not skimp on presents when gifting each other, and it appears to be the Duchess of Cambridge who has been spoiled the most. Gifting Experts from ‘Find Me A Gift’ took a look into jewellery gifts received by royal women from other members of the family, valued each gift and counted up how many each received to reveal which royal woman has the most expensive jewellery gift collection. From this study, it was discovered that Kate Middleton has the most pieces of jewellery from her fellow royals, receiving seven gifts in total.
Her total collection of gifts is worth £101,640, the second most expensive overall collection, just after Princess Diana.
For instance, Kate received a white and yellow diamond Art Deco bracelet, earrings, and ring from Prince Charles, valued at £57,000.
She also received a Cartier watch set with a sapphire from Prince William for £32,200.
Prince William additionally gifted his wife some sapphire and diamond earrings, which cost £5,200.

There has also been a rose gold Victorian ring set with pearls and garnets which cost £1,340.
Kate was lucky enough to even be gifted an eternity ring by William, which cost a further £1,200.
Moreover, from Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Duchess of Cambridge received a charm bracelet with Camilla’s monogram ‘C’ on one side and Kate’s on the other.
Meghan Markle on the other hand, according to this study has only received three gifts, and all three were from her husband, Prince Harry.
Meghan received the most expensive gift from her spouse, a large aquamarine diamond ring worth £75,000.
From what is known, she has only received gifts from Prince Harry, whereas Kate Middleton and Princess Diana received gifts from The Queen and Prince Charles.
Kate Middleton’s royal jewellery collection is worth 27 percent more than Meghan Markle’s.
Princess Diana received the most expensive piece, a diamond and pearl tiara from the Queen, worth £215,000.
She also has the most expensive gift collection overall, valued at £235,600.
Shaun Powell, CEO at ‘Find Me A Gift’, spoke to Express.co.uk about the above data and analysed the results.
Shaun said: “It’s clear to see who is the most popular daughter-in-law amongst the Royal Family.
“Kate not only received gifts from her husband Prince William but also The Queen and Prince Phillip.
“Princess Diana received a tiara from the queen as a wedding gift, worth £215,000, along with an heirloom emerald necklace.
“Meghan hasn’t received any jewellery gifts from the Queen to date, which is very telling.
“Having recently been named ‘Most Influential Couple’ in Time Magazine, after their abrupt exit from royal duties, Meghan and Harry will seemingly continue to distance themselves from the royals.”
