MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota’s transportation commissioner has purchased a house in Minneapolis from an unlikely seller, who just happens to be British royalty.

Commissioner Charlie Zelle bought his new digs on Cedar Lake from none other than the head of the monarchy, Queen Elizabeth II.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/1SL3WPp ) says Zelle, a former investment banker, and his wife, Julie, bought the 4,500-square-foot house in September for $1.6 million.

Queen Elizabeth never lived in the house, but the Canadian consul general did. Zelle was appointed transportation commissioner by Gov. Mark Dayton in 2013.
