(Newser) – If you're looking for a swanky place to take in the Summer Olympics in London, the queen has just the spot. She has agreed to rent out state apartments in St. James Palace for about $48,000 a day, reports the Daily Mail. This is St. James, not the queen's royal residence of Buckingham Palace, so you're not likely to bump into her highness in the hallway. Still, St. James houses the offices of royals such as William and Harry, notes AP.
