Prince Andrew is selling his beloved Swiss chateau to help settle a debt, as he apparently never made the final payment on his holiday home — Andrew’s only home actually owned by him, not the Crown. Isabelle de Rouvre sold the chalet to Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson back in 2014. According to The Sun, Rouvre is said to have been a friend of the Yorks but took them to court in 2020 after several attempts to get them to pay the final installment of $9 million on the home.
With that said, Andrew has now put it on the market in the hopes that he can settle his debt. “Court action has been withdrawn and the matter is close to being resolved to everybody’s mutual satisfaction,” a source reportedly close to the situation told The Times. Even though there is one lawsuit close to being settled, Andrew still has Virginia Giuffre’s to deal with, which could possibly cost him millions of dollars and drag on for years, according to Page Six. And now that his Swiss chalet is no longer his, the duke has one less place to hide, right?
