The strongbox – which is in the care of High Court judge Sir Andrew McFarlane at the Royal Courts of Justice – holds a unique selection of royal wills dating back to Prince Francis of Teck in 1911.

This includes the final wishes of Queen Elizabeth's mother, the late Queen Mother, her sister Princess Margaret, and her uncle the Duke of Windsor (also known as King Edward VIII), who abdicated the British throne in December 1936, McFarlane revealed Thursday.

Other testaments secreted inside the top-secret safe revealed by McFarlane on Thursday, include those of Philip's uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma, Queen Mary, the wife of King George V, and Princess Beatrice, the youngest child and close companion of Queen Victoria.

"I am now custodian of a safe in which there are over thirty envelopes, each of which purports to contain the sealed will of a deceased member of the Royal Family," McFarlane stated in September when revealing the existence of the royal safe during a legal battle over the secrecy of Prince Philip's last wishes, following his death on April 9. He was 99.

But they also appear to be attempting to shift the narrative, alleging in a blistering court filing that Giuffre's claims are motivated by money.

"I can confirm that the earliest such envelope is labeled as containing the will of Prince Francis of Teck," he added. "The most recent additions were made in 2002 and are, respectively, the wills of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother and Her late Royal Highness Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon."

Other than learning about whose wills are secreted in the mystery royal safe alongside the Duke of Edinburgh's, however, there's very little chance that any of the details contained in the documents themselves will ever be revealed.

During his September ruling, McFarlane stated that the royal family was entitled to an enhanced level of privacy "to protect the dignity and standing of the public role of the sovereign and other close members of her family."

He also ruled that applications to have the wills unsealed could only take place after 90 years, adding that any claims submitted prior to that date were "highly likely to fail in the absence of a specific, individual or private justification relating to the administration of the deceased's estate."

"In short," he added, "the publication of the list is intended to be an end in itself, in order to achieve transparency, and nothing more."
