Prince Andrew is said to have found a buyer for his luxury chalet in Verbier. The Swiss domicile of the British royal is now set to change hands for around 18 million pounds.
Prince Andrew (61) has sold his property in Verbier in the Swiss canton of Valais, according to a “Daily Mail” report. Sources close to the prince confirmed that the sale of the chalet in the luxury ski resort will “continue” now that a buyer has been found.
The property is said to bring in £ 18million (around € 21million) for the son of Queen Elizabeth II (95).
Paying old bills
Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson (62) are said to have paid around this price in 2014, the newspaper suspected as early as June 2020. Among other things, the chalet will have seven bedrooms, an indoor pool and a sauna. At the beginning of May, among other things, “The Sun” reported that a lawsuit against Andrew and his ex-wife had come from Switzerland because of the house.
The reason: For months, the two had failed to pay an installment in the millions for the luxury property.
The allegedly outstanding £ 6.6 million (7.9 million euros) should now have been paid last November, so that Prince Andrew can now sell the house. According to the newspaper, the sale should take place in the next few weeks.
Sexual abuse lawsuit
As “The Mirror” reported, he could want to use the proceeds to pay for his rising legal fees. Virginia Roberts Giuffre (38) has sued the Queen’s son in the United States.
She accuses him of sexual abuse, which the Royal vehemently denies. Prince Andrew has hired a team of lawyers, including top US lawyers, to crack down on Giuffre’s allegations.
