However, the article in the DM said that Margaret's will was also sealed, but I thought we knew its *contents* --that her children inherited everything (leading to the "estate sale" to pay death duties).
We know the queen mother left everything to the queen to avoid death duties, but it hadn't prevented her from established trusts to benefit relatives (tax free if within certain time parameters).
Sure I'm curious. I'd love to know where his money came from. Savings from his Civil List income? Did his sisters leave him anything? Rich friends (à la Mrs. Greville)? I mean, he brought zilch to the marriage.
I'm a Phil-Fan, don't get me wrong. Just curious!
