For there lived an extraordinary contraption, a testament to the Prince’s insatiable lust and to his immense corpulence.
Known romantically as a ‘siege d’amour’, or love-seat, this chair allowed the distinctly unathletic Bertie to have his way with two women simultaneously, all with the minimum of effort.
Rightie ho. And there\’s a photo of it.
All of which explains why the corpulent Prince found lovemaking rather more energetic
than he might wish — and why he resorted to using the siege d’amour to fulfil his lust.
The way in which Bertie used the chair has been lost in the mists of time. Now owned by the Soubrier furniture-making family, who originally custom-built the chair for Bertie, it has never been on public display.
So, the competition is, to try and work out how it was in fact used. I am obviously far too innocent as I can\’t work it out at all.
