HARROGATE, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 04: A picture of Queen Elizabeth II hangs in the drawing room in Pineheath house on September 4, 2013 in Harrogate, England. The untouched 40-bedroom house belonged to wealthy Indian-born aristocrats Sir Dhunjibhoy and Lady Bomanji, who were well-known figures in British high society at the start of the 20th century and were friends of the Royal Family. Sir Dhunjibhoy was a Bombay-based shipping magnate who also used his wealth to support Britain's war effort against the Nazis which led to him being knighted. Their 12-bathroom mansion in Harrogate was where they spent each autumn after staying at their house in Windsor during the summer and spending the winters in Poona, India. The mansion has been sold in a multi-million pound sale to a local businessman who plans to make it a family home again after Lady Bomanjis' daughter, Mrs Mehroo Jehangir, died in 2012 having not touched it since 1986, when her mother died.
