Available to Order

An intimate of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Diana Mitford (Lady Mosley) was a frequent guest at their parties in Paris or at the 'Moulin' in the village of Orsay just outside Paris, where they were neighbours. Written in her distinctive aristocratic style - archly intelligent, amused and perceptive - Diana Mitford paints an unforgettably life-like portrait of her friend that captures both the duchess's charm and flaws.

What was it that utterly captivated the Duke of Windsor and made him renounce his crown so that he might never be parted from Wallis Simpson? It is this question that Diana Mitford seeks to answer. She is perhaps more qualified than most given as she so enjoyed Wallis's and the Duke's company.

Diana Mosley is the middle of the Mitford sisters. She is the author of best-selling autobiography A Life of Contrasts and The Pursuit of Laughter. Her own life has been the subject of at least three biographies. She first married Bryan Guinness and next Oswald Mosley, with both of whom she had two sons. She was a longstanding friend and neighbour of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
