' Behind the doors of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's Paris home lay a dazzling private kingdom - a world of precious treasures, sumptuous furnishings, elegant clothes and exquisite dinner parties... . Never-before-published pictures by the master of elegance, Cecil Beaton, the legendary Horst and the Queen's cousin Lord Lichfield give an extraordinary insight into the world of the Windsors. The Windsor Style is the first book to look at the luxurious post-war life of the Duke and Duchess at home in their Paris mansion and at play at their converted mill-house in the French countryside, where the ex-King ruled over flower-filled English garden. We are taken to the Windsors' palatial Riviera villa and follow them on their royal progress through New York and Palm Beach.' (from the blurb).
