RE­GENTS PARK TO BE­COME THE HOME OF QATAR’S ROYAL FAM­ILY

Ekaruna - - News Round Up -

The royal fam­ily of Qatar has sub­mit­ted plans to con­vert three homes in Lon­don into their very own palace. Whilst the Gulf state’s rulers al­ready own a vast amount of prop­erty in Lon­don, the fam­ily still plans to build the UK’s very first £200 mil­lion home, in the heart of Re­gent’s Park. The Daily Mail has said the new palace will be a “33,000 square-foot man­sion, boast­ing a spa, heated swimming pool, beauty sa­lon, but­ler and nanny quar­ters, a chil­dren’s floor, game rooms, pow­der rooms, mas­sage ar­eas, two lifts and a gym­na­sium.” Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned bought the three homes last year for £120 mil­lion. She is one of the wives of Qatar’s for­mer emir Sheikh Ha­mad bin Khal­ifa Al Thani, and her fam­ily al­ready owns the Shard, Har­rods and the Olympic Vil­lage. It is said that the man­sion will be the Lon­don home of Sheikh Ha­mad’s son, the cur­rent emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad Al Thani.
