"The US Embassy is the only US Embassy in the world that does not belong to the United States. They wanted to buy it, but the Freeholder, the Duke of Westminster refused to sell and said he would only rent it. Infuriated, the American appealed to Parliament, but the only compromise on offer was that if the Americans returned all the land that was taken after the Independence War back to his family then he would sell. After the Americans realised that this would be most of Maine and New York, they agreed to a 999 year lease!"
