Inside Duchess Kate’s $3.6 million home before she became a royal
The home Kate shared with her sister Pippa before she became the Duchess of Cambridge has been put up for sale for a cool $3.6 million.
The three-bedroom apartment located in Chelsea, London, belongs to the Duchess’ parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, and according to The Sunday Times, they are expected to make a cool $2.2 million profit from the sale.
The home was purchased by the Middleton’s for $1.6 million in 2002, and now with the Duchess residing in Kensington Palace and Pippa living in a $31 million luxury townhouse in London with her husband James Matthews and their baby boy, the home is no longer needed.
After the birth of Prince George in 2013, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge moved into Apartment 1A. The beautiful home consists of 20 bedrooms and has a view of Hyde Park.
Pippa Middleton isn’t doing too bad either, as her and her multi-millionaire husband James recently completed the renovations on their five-story London mansion, which had already featured a gym, an underground cinema, a lift, a “staff room” and six bedrooms.
The renovations cost a total of $2.2 million.
The Middleton family's apartment sits on a quaint street in Chelsea with the home consisting of three floors with a number of rooms, along with the three bedrooms.
Also shown in photos is a small kitchen and a large dining area decorated with classic furniture and patterned curtains.
Kensington Palace did not provide a comment on the home being put up for sale.
