CHICAGO — If Queen Elizabeth II needs a change of scenery, she can always stay at her new pad in Chicago.

The queen bought a condo at 360 East Randolph for a little more than $1.5 million.

The building is appropriately named The Buckingham. The unit is 2,600 square feet, has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a separate laundry room and an updated kitchen.

The unit will be the home of the Canadian consul, as the monarch is also the constitutional queen of Canada.
