    Her Majesty has found a slice of Buckingham Palace in Chicago.

    Queen Elizabeth has purchased a 26th-floor condominium at the Buckingham, Crain’s Chicago Business reports.

    The condo is part of a 44-story building at 360 E. Randolph St., also known as ‘The Buckingham’ or ‘Buckingham Plaza’ as the building overlooks Buckingham Fountain.

    Although the Queen hasn't been to Chicago since 1959, Crain’s reports the longest ruling British monarch is the constitutional Queen of Canada, and the condo will be home to Canadian consul Roy Norton.

    City records show she purchased the unit in her name in late August. 

    How much she paid has not been released, but the same 2,600-square-foot home sold for more than $1.57 million dollars. It features a renovated kitchen, three bedrooms and baths, and a den.
