Fame & Fortune

Newcastle United’s new owners, Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund are reportedly worth £320 billion (R6.4 trillion) and the Prince who owns the fund has one of the biggest houses ever that is valued at R4.6 billion. Take a look! 

According to The Sun, crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed Bin Salman owns the wealth fund and the big-spending prince is known for splashing ridiculous amounts of money on whatever he wants, including his French chateau (mansion) that is labelled as the world’s biggest house.

Mohammed got his £230 million (R4.6 billion) palace in 2015 which is a small change for the man who is reportedly worth £13billion (R262 billion). For context, the house is only £70 million (R1.4 billion) cheaper than the fee that was paid to buy the Magpies. 

The 57-acre building consists of 10 bedrooms, a swimming pool, cinema, aquarium, state of the art gardens, mazes and fountains that can be controlled with a cellphone. The home is so advanced that everything from the sound systems, the lights, and air conditioning are all controlled by iPhone.

The chateau is only one of the prince’s assets that includes a $500 million (R7.4 billion) yacht and a $450 million (R6.6 billion) Leonardo da Vinci painting, nightclub and more according to Businessinsider 

The superyacht is a Serence that is 439 feet which makes it the ninth-largest in the world as it can house 24 guests and 52 crew.
