I believe the collapse of the House of Windsor is tied in with the collapse of the Church of England. -A. N. Wilson-

Still lying on the Steinway grand piano in the French mansion where the Duke and Duchess of Windsor lived and died, is sheet music which symbolically captures the century's greatest love story. Mr. Wonderful, I like Paris and something`s gotta give are there. The heavy symbolism which can be read into the last royal favorite was the Throne that he gave up as Edward VIII for his beloved Wallis.

Their home, in the leafy solitude of the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, is silent but once again in impeccable shape after extensive renovation. It was very silent for most of the last years of the life of the Duchess, who died here of yore. Now the lovers lie beside together again in Frogmore, Windsor, where the Queen granted their burial, reunited in death and finally at peace with his family.

But a visit to their Paris home, the first to be permitted, reveals and revives in the mind of the halcyon days of the Windsors at their most zestful and flamboyant. The City of Paris, which owns the mansion, has signed a 50‐year lease for it to become the property of millionaire businessman, Mohamed Fayed, the owner of Harrods. And the other 100–plus House of Fraser stores in Britain.

He is renowned for collecting ‘institutions‘ like Harrods and the Ritz in Paris, even Turnbull and Asser, the shirt—makers in Jermyn Street, London, who made Winston Churchill’s wartime siren suits. The stateliness of the Windsor′s lives in exile surface in everything, from the Duke‵s books in the library ― Shackleton‘s The Heart Of The Antarctic, The History Of The American People. Also The Assault On Everest 1922 ― to the art in her bathroom ― a gouache painting of her in a décolleté yellow top hangs above the porcelain bath.

Love, love, love ― quite properly, considering all that the Duke had forsaken for his Lady from Baltimore ― became the motif about much of the ambiance in their home. Yves St Laurent painted them a plaque in 1970 with the word LOVE, in capitals, with serpents entwined around each letter. The Duchess loved serpent jewelry. It hangs today in the marble inside the imposing front door.

Another St Laurent LOVE 1971 painting hangs outside, near blue‐veined marble hand basin. And another, the last, LOVE 1972 has the letter framed in a blazing red sunset with the O of love in the shape of a heart.
