London - The £100,000 per week rent is way out of their league a Palace spokesperson admitted today as Red Top nutz talked up reports about Princess Margaret's former home being handed on a sliver platter to hoaxer royals Wills and Kate.
A 2002 Government agreement saw the setting of commercial rents on all Palace properties making Apartment 1A 'a bargain' even at current commercial rates of £5 million per annum.
Then there are the estimated £100,000 heating, lighting and service charge costs to factor in excluding annual staff salaries of at least £250,000 that's needed to adequately look after the sprawling flat.
But for Cherie Blair and George W Bush's greedy, grasping daughter fixing this little detail is a doddle.
"Kate reckons she and her bigamous husband can easily blag their way to this grace and favor monstrosity," a Whitehall source said today.
"Wanna see pix of her 2000 wedding to Tory Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne?"
