Katie Price's decrepit £2million mansion with abandoned pool

Katie Price's £2million home stands decrepit and unkempt, amid claims the star is close to bankruptcy. The glamour model, 40, bought the sprawling country mansion back in 2014, shortly after tying the knot with Kieran Hayler, 31, but the star's recent financial woes in the wake of her divorce appear to have taken their toll. The property in Horsham, West Sussex, once boasted stunning greenery and numerous luxury cars on the driveway, but is now home to an abandoned swimming pool and tired, overgrown facilities.

Queen Letizia of Spain takes Princesses Leonor and Sofia to market

Queen Letizia of Spain, 45, and her mother-in-law former Queen Sofia looked as though they had put any rumours of a dispute behind them as they took Princesses Leonor, 12, and Sofia, 11, to Olivar food market in Palma de Majorca on Tuesday. The family, along with King Felipe, have been enjoying time at the Almudaina Palace, which is their annual retreat for the summer holidays. Pictured in summery attire, the royal foursome were seen ambling through the popular market, admiring the fresh produce on offer. Former journalist Letizia (left), a fashion icon across the country, teamed a pair of chic white shorts with a coordinating tie-dye style top. Leonor (pictured right, on the left of Sofia) wore white jeans shorts and a matching blouse with blue threading. Her younger sister Sofia (pictured to the right of her grandmother) opted for khaki shorts and a white vest, while the whole family wore comfortable wedges for the outing. The united front comes after a clip emerged in April filmed at the Palma Cathedral in Majorca on Easter Sunday, which appeared to show a very awkward exchange between Letizia and Sofia (inset).
