Well..... Earl Spencer must have liked it, as he bought a flat for his daughter ....LADY Diana.... who then married Prince Charles and decided to .... rough it....!!!.... by moving down to Bucks House ( buckingham palace)
Diana's kids must also love it as they are practically seen WEEKLY at boujis around the corner ( The night Club made famous by William and Harry).... How convenient for them.... if they had too much to drink... from here to Kensington Palace is just a brief walk....
