Sheikh splashes out £25 million on two London flats - just so he can be close to Harrods

A super wealthy Omani sheikh has splashed out £25 million on two plush London apartments – one of which will be for his staff.

The unnamed buyer was only interested in the Knightsbridge area of the capital as he wanted to be near the world famous Harrods department store.

According to agents Rokstone, the Arab gentleman bought one five-bed apartment in Cadogan Square for £17m and another four bedroom property 10 minutes’ away for £8m.
