They're planning to buy their first pad

They have a combined wealth of almost £80 million, so Kim Kardashian, 32, and boyfriend Kanye West, 35, should have no problems finding the £18 million to buy Beckingham Palace.

The couple, who’ve been dating since December 2011, fancy using David and Victoria Beckhams Hertfordshire home as their UK base when they’re in Europe.

A source reveals: ‘Kim usually stays in London when she has European press to do.

‘She’s been looking at places to buy in the UK for ages.

Kanye loves the house.He’s really into architecture and thinks it’d be perfect for them.’

Posh and Becks are planning to put the 17-acre home – which they bought in 1999 – on the market to buy a property in Knightsbridge or Chelsea.

‘Both Kim and Kanye have fallen in love with the place,’ says our source.

‘They’ve already talked about how they can make it their own.

Kanye wants a cinema room and Kim wants a better gym.’
