The Private World of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor
Discover the story behind one of the most famous romances of the 20th century in this carefully researched, beautifully presented coffee table tome -The Private World of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
Filled with photographs taken from the Duke and Duchess’s private collection, extracts from scrapbooks, newspaper cuttings it provides a fascinating insight into the couple’s lives from their early childhoods to the beginnings of their relationship and their 35 years of married life together.
The photographs range from family snapshots to formal portraits by leading photographers including Dorothy Wilding and Cecil Beaton. Many were discovered in drawers and cupboards during the restoration of the Villa, but the most exciting find was some 10,000 photographs which had been concealed in a bathtub by loyal staff during the Duchess’s long and final illness, when many private papers were being spirited away from the house.
This beautifully presented book was compiled following Mohamed Al Fayed's loving restoration of the Villa, and is available to purchase for the first time through alfayed.com.
