The Queen’s secret Love Island connection after villa owner revealed as distant granddaughter of Queen Victoria – The Sun
YOU may think that the bikini-clad hotties soaking up the sun on Love Island are worlds apart from the regal life of the Queen – but you’d be mistaken.
It turns out that Her Majesty is distantly related to the multi-millionaire who owns the swanky villa in Majorca.
The incredible Love Island pad has been revealed as belonging to Nikolaus Broschek, who is married to a blue-blood relation of the Queen.
The German businessman’s wife is Princess Ingeborg Schleswig-Holstein, who is a fourth-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.
For years, the man behind the famous pad has been shrouded in mystery, but now it turns out it's Nikolaus who has been renting the home to ITV2 via a Spanish company.
Fans of the hit show will be more than familiar with the stunning property, which comes with a Jacuzzi, infinity pool and an outdoor gym.
During filming, there’s also outside seating and day beds set up around the pool area as well as sun-loungers and an al-fresco bar for late-night drinks.
And the iconic fire pit completes the outside area, where Caroline Flack hosts the re-couplings.
Nikolaus, 77, entered nobility in May 1991 in Hamburg when he married Ingeborg, 63, and the pair have an aristocratic son called Alexis, 23, who is studying at the London School of Economics.
The Love Island villa is located on the Spanish Balearic Island of Majorca (Mallorca), in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar on the East of the Island.
Nikolaus is listed as the director of Casas Rusticas e Historicas de Mallorca, which is the Palma-based company that owns the villa.
He’s also the director of another Majorcan property firm – but isn’t the second Love Island villa, Casa Amor, which has a different owner.
Can I stay at the Love Island villa?
Yes, you can stay in the villa, but it will cost around £3000 for a week's stay.
The luxury villa boasts a super-sized hot tub, infinity pool, outdoor kitchen and terrace.
So if you don't want to be on the show, but would like to stay at the villa start saving now.
The villa is the same luxury location that last year's contestants stayed in but as seen in pics obtained by The Sun the famous villa is having a slight overhaul.
And ever wish you could spend a night lounging on the Islanders’ day beds and trying to crack on with some tanned hotties?
You are in luck! The villa can be rented out but it will cost around £3,000 for a week's stay.
