The world was saddened to learn of the passing of the beloved monarch on 8 September. As the longest-serving monarch in British history, her legacy will live on for generations to come.
But what of her final wishes? It is likely that the Queen left a will, but when will its contents become public?
The answer is, unfortunately, never. Wills of members of the royal family are sealed, meaning that the public will never know the Queen’s final wishes.
The Queen’s will is held by the Royal Household, and is not subject to the same laws as other wills. This means that the Queen’s will is not open to public scrutiny and will remain private.
The Queen’s will is likely to be complex, as she was the head of the royal family and the owner of vast estates and other assets. Her will is likely to contain instructions on how to divide her assets among her family members, as well as instructions on how to manage her estates.
The Queen’s will will also likely contain instructions on how to manage her charitable trusts and foundations. She was a passionate philanthropist and her will will likely contain instructions on how to ensure her charitable work continues after her death.
The Queen’s will will remain sealed until 20-Sept-2022, when it will be opened and its contents made known to the public. Until then, the Queen’s final wishes will remain a mystery.
