WELLESLEY, Mass., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Officials in Massachusetts said "Her Majesty, the Queen" -- as in Queen Elizabeth II -- is listed as the owner of a $1.5 million suburban Boston home.

The Norfolk Registry of Deeds said the Wellesley colonial home was purchased Jan. 18 and lists the queen as the owner, despite it actually being purchased by the Canadian Consulate in Boston, WCVB-TV, Boston, reported Tuesday.

"Since the queen is still our head of state, the transaction might appear that way," Canadian Consul General Patrick Binns said.

Binns said the home is slated to replace the consul-general's current Weston residence and it is unlikely the queen has any knowledge of the property, which was paid for by the Canadian government.
