The former London home of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and her sister Pippa Matthews has gone on sale for £1,950,000 (R35 million).

The sisters, then Kate and Pippa Middleton, used to share a luxurious three-bedroom flat in Chelsea, west London, which is owned by their parents, Michael and Carole.

The Middletons bought the flat for £780,000 (R14 million) in 2002, and are set to make a £1.2 million (R22 million) profit from the sale, according to The Sunday Times.

It comprises of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a double reception room, and a kitchen.

Located on a stylish street just off the famous King's Road and near the River Thames, the home has been decorated in a luxurious but traditional and homely style.

An ornate dining table and plush sofas offer a contrast to the sleek bathrooms as well as exotic touches such as elephant trinkets and oriental-style rugs.

The Middleton sisters have not lived in the flat for a few years - the Duchess of Cambridge now lives in Kensington Palace with the Duke of Cambridge and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Kate and Prince William moved into the palace's 20-room Apartment 1A in 2013 after their first child was born.

The Duchess's younger sister Pippa married hedge fund multimillionaire James Matthews in 2016 and the couple now live in a £17 million (R306 million) mansion, also in west London, according to The Sunday Times.

Pippa and Kate's brother James works as a tour guide in the Scottish Highlands - he actually works for Pippa's father-in-law at his Scotland resort - and as a result, splits his time between there and the Middleton family home, a seven-bedroom house called Bucklebury Manor in West Berkshire.

With their children all moved out, it seems Michael and Carole Middleton no longer have any use for the chic London home.
