After Battle of Hogwarts, what happened to the Deathly Hallows?

According to Harry Potter, The Deathly Hallows can make their owners exceedingly powerful. But, after the Battle of Hogwarts, what happened to them?
The Deathly Hallows is a final installment in Harry Potter series, and it features Voldemort’s downfall in an epic fight. The plot was so epic that it was split into two films, with Harry, Ron, and Hermione learning about the Deathly Hallows and their crucial role in the battle against the dark forces. However, following the Battle of Hogwarts and the Death of Voldemort, the destiny of the artifacts is uncertain.

The Deathly Hallows refer to an old story called The Tale of the Three Brothers in the Wizarding World. A personification of the Death appears to the three Peverell brothers after they use magic to build a bridge over a river to congratulate them on escaping him and offer each of them a magical gift: the Elder Wand to Antioch Peverell, the Resurrection Stone to Cadmus Peverell, and the Cloak of Invisibility to Ignotus Peverell. Except for Ignostus, who ingeniously uses the cloak to elude Death until he’s ready to move on, these artifacts are a deception used by Death to claim the brothers’ lives.
Like the Horcruxes and Sword of Gryffindor, the Deathly Hallows swiftly become MacGuffins after becoming a part of Harry’s adventure. Of course, Harry had had the Cloak of Invisibility since his first year at Hogwarts, leaving only two to track down. Regrettably, Harry had a vision that Voldemort was on the lookout for the Elder Wand, which the evil wizard eventually discovered in Dumbledore’s tomb. Harry overcomes Voldemort and gains custody of the Elder Wand after understanding the Resurrection Stone was hidden inside of Golden Snitch left to him by Dumbledore. He was true master of Elder Wand all along.

After the Battle of the Hogwarts, the Elder Wand is given a different fate in Deathly Hallows: Part II, while the location of the other two artifacts is left to guesswork. Only one of the Deathly Hallows has a meaningful future, like in The Tale of the Three Brothers. After killing Voldemort in the film, Harry smashes the Elder Wand in half and throws it away; however, in the novel, Harry returns the wand to Dumbledore’s grave, trusting that its power will be broken if and when he dies a natural death.

Before encountering Voldemort, Harry uses the Resurrection Stone in the Forbidden Forest to contact his deceased parents and Sirius and Lupin. However, after deciding to accept his fate and perish at the hands of Voldemort, he drops it on the woodland floor and walks away as the forms of his loved ones fade. As the Peverell brothers’ story warned, too much touch with the dead can drive the living insane, so Harry’s decision to leave it and move on was probably for the best.

Finally, the Cloak of Invisibility was more or less proven to be in Harry’s possession. Dumbledore handed the cloak to Harry during his first year at Hogwarts because it belonged to his father, James, similar to how Ignotus gave it to his son before passing away. As fate would have it, Harry would pass the cloak down to his son, James, carrying on the tradition of the cover being the most important Deathly Hallow in the Wizarding World.
