THE GREEN BAIZE DOOR ERNEST KING THEIR SERVANT


At one time, "the green baize door" in a house separated the servants' quarters from the family's living quarters; thus the phrase's usage as a general name for domestic service.

As Steward to Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh, Ernest King reached the top of the tree as a man-servant. Other royal households in which he served as the domestic head were those of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and of King George of Greece. His memoirs, however, are not solely devoted to his years of royal service. Spanning an era of great social changes, his pages reflect striking differences between what the butler saw in the lavish establishments of the very rich and the comparative austerity of royal standards.
