What’s the truth behind Andrew’s controversial £15m home sale?
The prince has previously come under scrutiny for the sale of his controversial former marital home.
Royal biographer Nigel Cawthorne said: “He sold Sunninghill Park in Berkshire, in 2007 for £15m – £3m more than the asking price after lingering on the market – for a Kazakh tycoon.
“It was a wedding gift from the Queen.”
The Daily Mail claims that Andrew also tried to convince Coutts, the Queen’s bank, to accept oligarch Timur Kulibayev as a client.
The reports follow earlier allegations that Andrew tried to broker a deal between a Greek wastewater company and a Swiss financial firm in which he would have benefited from a commission. worth £4 million.
Cawthorne continued: “Andrew and Fergie currently live without rent in the seven-bedroom Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.
“Then there’s a ski lodge in Switzerland with six employees he is said to be selling for an estimated £18m – minus the £6.6m he still owes the previous salesman sue him.
“The swish property was bought in 2015 with a mortgage as an ‘investment’ and a little help from the Mother Bank, he probably won’t have to pay it back.”
