If you want to live like royalty, you don’t have to shell out for your own castle. In fact, a simple apartment will do. Now, you can rent a three-bedroom apartment directly below the Queen of England’s New York City condo. The fully furnished space in the United Nations Plaza—which comes complete with sweeping views of the East River—will set you back $30,000 a month. Royal life is, after all, totally luxurious.

Queen Elizabeth II bought her NYC pad back in 2015, but it seems like she never used it: After all, she last visited the city back in 2010 after not stepping foot in the Big Apple for 34 years before that. Surely, though, she must allow Meghan and Harry to crash—maybe even during their upcoming American tour.

The apartment available to rent offers no shortage of luxe amenities, from a spacious kitchen and living area perfect for entertaining to floor-to-ceiling windows that make it perfectly easy to catch a full view of the sunrise.
