Eyebrows raised when news outlets reported Queen Elizabeth II’s 2015 “purchase” of a three-bedroom apartment at 50 United Nations Plaza.

It turns out the buyer was New Zealand’s ambassador to the UN, Gerard van Bohemen, who used his formal title as the Queen’s representative when he signed the deed.

Now a unit directly underneath that almost-royal (but still diplomat-owned) pad, 17B, is for sale for $8.05 million, which is less than the $8.11 million that owner paid in 2015. The unit was last asking $8.25 million in May 2017.

The 3,004-square-foot unit is also on the market as a $29,500-a-month furnished rental. The apartment features a spacious kitchen, a corner dining room and 11-foot floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the East River. The building was designed by Foster + Partners, and is aptly located steps from the UN.

Residents include UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, as we reported. Nest Seekers’ Jessica C. Campbell and Wendy Jackson have the sales and rental listing.
