A three-bedroom apartment fit for a future queen has been put on the market.
The Chelsea home that Kate and Pippa Middleton shared before the elder sister became Duchess of Cambridge is up for sale.
While the three-storey home might pail in comparison to the stunning 20-room Kensington Palace that now houses Will, Kate and their three children, it is not going cheap.
The West London property on Old Church Street has been put on the market for £1.95m.
Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, own the apartment and are set to make a £1.2million profit from the sale, according to The Sunday Times.
The Middletons bought the home for £780,000 in 2002 and have not revealed why they are selling it.
Since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge moved to Apartment 1a, Kensington Palace in 2013 after Prince George was born there has been less demand for the Chelsea flat.
Pippa Middleton is also without need for the property after she married hedge-fund multi-millionaire James Matthews.
The couple recently spent £1.2million renovating their five-storey London mansion, adding features to a property which already boasted a gym, an underground cinema, a lift, a ‘staff room’ and six bedrooms.
The third Middleton sibling James, who lives and works in Scotland, splits his time between staying up north, being in London and the seven-bedroom family home in Berkshire.
The Chelsea apartment is spread across three floors with a three bedrooms decorated with colourful cushions.
It is decorated with neutral colours and traditional furniture, oriental-style rugs and sofas.
At odds with the spacious living room and bedrooms is a diminutive kitchen, which has oak-coloured furnishings and black marble counters.
Unlike most twenty-somethings living in London for the first time, the Middleton sisters enjoyed a spacious dining room with patterned curtains and an old-fashioned mirror.
Kensington Palace said it were unable to comment on the home being put up for sale.
