For­eign Sec­re­tary and Brexit backer Boris John­son made it clear from an early age that he wanted to achieve high of­fice.

Boris and his sib­lings were en­cour­aged as chil­dren to dis­cuss high-brow sub­jects, and his fa­ther Stan­ley says the ear­li­est am­bi­tion of the young Boris was to be ‘world king’.

Such unswerv­ing am­bi­tion has car­ried him far, from po­lit­i­cal col­umn writer to be­ing MP for Hen­ley-on-Thames and later Mayor of Lon­don and, more re­cently, join­ing Theresa May’s cab­i­net.

His par­ents took Boris and his sib­lings all over the world and while Boris was born in New York he also called Ex­moor, Lon­don, Wash­ing­ton DC, Ox­ford and Brus­sels

Keith Richards has re­alised you can’t al­ways get what you want when it comes to buy­ing and sell­ing prop­erty.

The Rolling Stones gui­tarist first put his New York du­plex up for sale in March 2016 but has since had to drop the price by more than $1 mil­lion in an at­tempt to sell it. Wild horses couldn’t drag buy­ers to part with the $12.23 mil­lion first de­manded for the three-bed­room pent­house in Green­wich Vil­lage, but now that the price tag has been re­duced to $10.995 mil­lion the prop­erty is likely to achieve a lot more in­ter­est.

Keith and his wife Patti Hansen bought the apart­ment, which fea­tures funky rock roy­alty styling and stun­ning views of Wash­ing­ton Park Square, back in Fe­bru­ary 2014.

The spa­cious, 2,700 sq ft apart­ment fea­tures three bed­rooms, four bath­rooms, three ter­races and a fully-in­te­grated Sonos sound sys­tem.

Keith Richards’ apart­ment is for sale at $10.995 mil­lion via Dou­glas El­li­man Real Es­tate (00 1 212 891 7676).
