The Paris home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor will be turned into a museum, and it will also have a cafe.

A heritage trust has been given the task of turning the run-down villa in the Bois de Boulogne into a permanent museum. The mansion includes 14 rooms and two-acre gardens.

After the death of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, it was supposedly intended to become the home of Diana, Princess of Wales, and she had also visited the home.

The Fondation Mansart, which also maintains the Château de Maintenon, aims to open the Villa Windsor as a museum and exhibition centre in 2024. The work is reportedly budgeted at €8.7 million.
