Kim Kardashian wants to buy Beckingham Palace.

The 31-year-old reality star reportedly has a viewing lined up at the £18million British home of David and Victoria Beckham.

The couple - who relocated to Los Angeles in 2007 so David could play football for La Galaxy - are apparently selling the 17-acre estate in a bid to sever ties with the UK.

And Kim is said to be planning to snap up the property - which comes complete with helipad, petting zoo, swimming pools and a recording studio - to use as a European base for her family including sisters Khloe and Kourtney and mother Kris Jenner.

A source told The Sun newspaper that when the family isn't there, Kim hopes to rent the place out to fans of the Beckhams - who bought the mansion back in 1999 shortly after their marriage.

It is thought the pair will also sell their £2.5million French villa as part of their plan to focus on life In America.

An insider told the Daily Mirror: ''David and Victoria have been wanting to sell up for a couple of years now but the timing was never right.

''They didn't want to lose money, putting their homes up for sale during a slump in the property market.

''So, after getting it valued two years ago, decided to hold off until now.

''They don't need the money, as such, but no longer use either place and realise in this current climate it's crazy to effectively throw cash away.

''The Beckhams have made Los Angeles their home, and the kids are settled there.''
