Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson put their luxury Swiss chalet on the market for £18.3million

The Duke and Duchess of York have put their luxury Swiss chalet on the market for £18.3 million – exactly what they are believed to have paid for it six years ago.

The Mail on Sunday understands there have yet to be any expressions of interest from potential buyers of the seven-bedroom Verbier lodge, the subject of legal action between the couple and a French socialite.

The chalet, reportedly boasting a 650 square foot indoor swimming pool, sauna, sun terrace and bar, is being sold to repay a £6.7 million debt to former owner Isabelle de Rouvre.

She is suing the couple after they failed to pay the final instalment due by New Year’s Day.

Last night, a friend of the Yorks said: ‘They will in effect make a loss, but they just want to repay the debt as quickly as possible.’

Ever since Prince Andrew (pictured) stepped down from Royal duties following his controversial interview over his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, the Yorks' finances have taken a hit 

The Yorks, whose finances have been hit after Prince Andrew stepped down from Royal duties after a ‘car-crash’ interview about his relationship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, claim Ms de Rouvre knew they intended to sell the chalet to repay the money.

Last night a spokesman for the Duke declined to comment.
