The Queen's Old Malta Villa Can Now Be Yours, if You Have a Spare $6.7 Million

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, when they were first married, spent significant time in Malta at their Villa Guardamangia. The "palazzo-style mansion" is apparently gorgeous, although it;s fallen into disrepair since then. The residence is now on the market for 5.3 million pounds, which, roughly translated, is $6,753,233.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, when they were first married, spent significant time in Malta at their Villa Guardamangia. The "palazzo-style mansion" is apparently gorgeous, although it's fallen into disrepair since then. The residence is now on the market for 5.3 million pounds, which, roughly translated, is $6,753,233. Please, come join me as I ogle this gorgeous historical residence.

Here's more details about the place, which sounds like it might need an update (just like Frogmore):

The Queen apparently is very fond of the residence, saying in 2015, "Visiting Malta is always very special for me. I remember happy days here with Prince Philip when we were first married." So this is the spot of royal newlywed bliss—just sayin'. In fact, here's a picture of them at the villa:
