The Chelsea home that Kate Middleton shared with her sister Pippa before she became the Duchess of Cambridge has been put on the market for £1.95million.
Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, own the three-bedroom flat in west London and are set to make a £1.2million profit from the sale, according to The Sunday Times.
The Middletons, who bought the home for £780,000 in 2002, have not revealed the reason for selling the flat in the well sought after area.
But they may have no need for the property due to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge now living in Kensington Palace.

Prince William and Kate Middleton moved into Apartment 1A in 2013 after Prince George was born. The family of five live in the stunning 20-room home that has a view of Hyde Park.
Pippa Middleton married hedge-fund multi-millionaire James Matthews and the couple recently spent £1.2million renovating their five-storey London mansion, which already boasted a gym, an underground cinema, a lift, a ‘staff room’ as well as six bedrooms.
And the third sibling, James, who lives and works in Scotland, divides his time between staying up north, being in London and the seven-bedroom family home in Berkshire.
Set on a stylish street, the flat Chelsea flat is spread across three floors with a trio of bedrooms decorated with colourful cushions.
The property is decorated with simple and neutral colours and traditional furniture, oriental-style rugs and comfortable sofas.
