A flat fit for a future queen: Kate's three-bedroom Chelsea home she shared with sister Pippa before becoming a duchess is put up for sale for £1.95m (a sum that would net their parents a £1.2million profit!)

     The Duchess of Cambridge's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, bought the home for £780,000 in 2002
     Set on a stylish street, the flat is decorated with neutral colours, patterned curtains and traditional furniture
     The Middletons may have no need for the flat now that Kate lives in Kensington Palace and Pippa in London

Does the staircase suggest it was spread over several levels?

The curtains are fugly.

The two vapid social climbingdaughters got two gulliable rich men to marry them and James, the loser in all things now works for his brother-in-lw in Scotland and lives with his parents when he's in London. I think now the parents are feeling the pinch otherwise why sell this place and give multiple interviews to push Party Pieces. I think if they weren't in a financial crunch, they would've kept this flat and then discretely rented it out.

I am actually surprised they are letting this flat go. For one it says James stays between Scotland (Glen Affric), Berks (Midd Manor) and London, so where does he stay in London once this flat goes? Do the Midds have another flat? It is only known they have the Manor and no other property in London apart from this Chelsea one. For another I am generally surprised the Midds don't/ won't keep a London property, unless, as said, they have another one which no one seems to know about.

There was talk of another one several years ago in the Notting Hill area but don’t know how true that was.

^ Must've been true, because otherwise where else would James stay?
And as said on top of that all rich people aspire (as show of status) for a city place and a country place, so from that point alone it is unfathomable that the Midds would sell this flat (if that is or were their only London place).
I'd prefer the location of this flat to Notting Hill, but if they do own sth in Notting Hill maybe it's bigger and better... Maybe even closer to KP. Though this flat is close to both KP and Pip's London address...

I think the Middletons are dropping the London flat to start going global; I am sure that  the UK is too aware of their game plan and they want to go global and try to find someone who will not be as clued in as to their antics.

True re finding someone not so clued in to their antics.  That was precisely why Maria the Spanish nanny was hired.  Mikey and ma are separated so perhaps he wants some cash to do his own thing although for appearances sake he is still allegedly at medd manor.

I think James might stay at Pippa and Jame's place as he's now an employee of James. He was seen helping out with the property earlier this year. I think when Pippa and James go out of town, James looks after the house. I don't get the feelng that they have another place in London. I think that with her foray into yacking publicly to the press, Carol's in need of hard cash to keep things afloat and/or might owe taxes as Party Pieces is a private company and the financials aren't made public. Watever the reason, I still wouldn't sold this place.

 I think London has become socially hostile to the Middletons and they've decided to decamp. You know, for a while, both sisters could pretend to enjoy a simple social life without there being an agenda, but I do believe that at this point, no one is under any illusions and there has been a lot of ugly looks thrown their way.

Thing is, that I believe HM's patience towards the Midds has ended and the money spigot has been shut down. There is no way that either HM or Charles were EVER going to let William use British taxpayer money to support that family in perpetuity and I do believe that Pippa's husband has shown that he will not let Pippa and her family use him as a human ATM. I always said that Pippa would not get away with it and I think I was right.

It could well be just that; in order to effectively hoodwink someone, it will take someone too preoccupied to focus on their methods in detail and not realize they're being drawn in. It will take some work, but I am certain that they will pick up stakes and try to start a new chapter in a new location.

I’m shocked that James didn’t get his real estate license to get his cut.  Actually that would be a worthy gig for him.

Oh, Yooper, please break the James Middleton thread! That was a great comment and I would love to have that thread broken into action and we could chat about his upcoming antics when it comes to finding a mate and possible career prospects.

The Midds have been allegedly reported to HMRC many times for using PP as a conduit for uncle G’s ‘earnings’ for reported pimping and drug involvement.  Who knows, maybe it has caught up with them.  As documented many times QE was said to intervene saying Kate was then PW’s girlfriend etc so leave off’.  Ma was overheard saying she has the run KP so doesn’t need another flat.

No, it wasn't. I believe it was because of the other woman in their lives that KM will never be able to get rid of no matter how hard she tries.

I'd say the Middletons are unloading their London flat because of the cost of keeping it up.

Exactly; I believe it's too much and they can't afford to pay big bucks for their dolt son James to have a PR campaign that would attract some rich *fool*.
