December 2017: Billionaire.com (our daily reading) reported that the penthouse was for sale: "... also once the home of Queen Victoria’s grandson, Alexander Mountbatten, before he moved into Kensington Palace. More recently, British fashion designer Alexander McQueen bought the flat and lower floors of the building in 2008 and planned to convert it back into a single townhouse but died in 2010 before work could start."
