Who is the owner of the world's most expensive house?

Lakshmi N Mittal

Chairman and CEO, of the LNM Group, has bought a central London house for a stunning price of £70 million ($128.25 US million).
The Non-Resident Indian steel magnate's new house has thus walked into the Guinness Book of Records as the world's most expensive house.
The previous record for the most expensive house was £62.7 million ($114.89 million) for a 1997 sale in Hong Kong. The 12-bedroom mansion located at the prestigious Kensington Palace Gardens has garage space for 20 cars. Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One racing boss, who sold the house to Mittal, had bought it for his wife three years ago.
The Kensington Palace Gardens houses are dubbed Billionaires' Row. Nearby are Kensington Palace and the London home of the Sultan of Brunei. It is also close to Kensington Palace where Princess Diana lived.


Where was the world's most expensive wedding took place?
On June 22, 2004, Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia

The cost of the wedding is expected to exceed over £30 million ($60 US million).
For the billionaire steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal, recently ranked the fifth richest man in the world, money is no object when it comes to the marriage of his daughter. Which is why the Indian-born businessman has hired the 17th-century Vaux le Vicomte in France for the nuptials of 23-year-old Vanisha and her banker fiance.
