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