Attention, royal fans: You no longer have to travel to England to get close to one of Queen Elizabeth II's royal estates. In 2015, the Queen purchased a three-bedroom pied-à-terre in the United Nations Plaza for $7.9 million, and now, the unit below it is available for rent. No surprise here, the three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot apartment is stunning and comes with breathtaking views of the East River, which can be enjoyed from the 11-foot floor-to-ceiling windows. The only catch: You'll need to fork over $30,000 per month to cover rent for the luxurious condo.

Fortunately, taking a virtual tour of the property is free—just take a look at the images below, posted on the rental listing for the apartment by Nest Seekers International. Now, let's all imagine eating breakfast with that as our view every morning.

A Dining Room with a View

Kick your dinner parties up a notch with incredible views of the East River.

A Luxe Living Room

The $30,000-per-month rent includes all of the furnishings, such as the regal purple velvet chairs in the living room.

A Tub Fit for Royalty

Perhaps the best part of this magnificent apartment is the tub, which also boasts impressive views. A bubble bath in this tub is enough to make anyone feel like royalty.

The Master Bedroom

You won't have to worry about Queen Elizabeth being a noisy neighbor who will keep you up at night—she hasn't visited New York City since 2010, so it's unlikely she'll be hanging around the condo too often.

The Kitchen

The fully-equipped chef's kitchen is suited for hosting extravagant parties and events, or, you know, your family's Thanksgiving dinner.
