It’s no Buckingham Palace, but it’s rather special anyway.

Even the British royal family is getting into the business of pieds-a-terre in New York. Queen Elizabeth II is now the proud owner of an apartment at Zeckendorf Development and Eyal Ofer’s Global Holdings 50 United Nations Plaza. The royal family spent $7.9 million on the three-bedroom pad.

The unit includes 3.5 bathrooms and spans roughly 3,000 square feet, according to the listing on StreetEasy. The unit would serve perfectly as a getaway for the queen’s grandsons, or maybe even as her own getaway. Only, of course, if she decides to resign and hand the rei(g)ns to her son Charles.

Norman Foster designed the building. The starchitect was knighted by the Queen in 1990.
