Madonna eyes Windsor jewels?

Madonna has reportedly taken a fancy to some of the Windsor jewels she had replicated for her royal film WE.

The 52-year-old star, who has been directing a film centred around Edward VIII's abdication from the British throne, was apparently spotted in Sotheby's trying on several pieces of the Cartier jewels Edward gave American divorcee Wallis Simpson, The Daily Mail reports.

Madonna is said to have replicas of the jewels - which are due to be sold by current Syrian billionaire owner Wafic Said - made for her movie, but has now apparently fallen for the real thing.

The singer reportedly has her heart set on an onyx and diamond panther bracelet estimated to fetch up to £2 million when it is auctioned later this month.

WE charts the life of Edward VIII's wife Wallis Simpson, who will be played by Andrea Riseborough, and will mark Madonna's feature-length directorial debut. James D'Arcy will play Edward.
