This is another reference to the abdication crisis, as Fort Belvedere was one of Edward VIII's homes, situated on Shrubs Hill in Windsor Great Park.

It was the setting for the final meetings between Edward VIII, his brother the Duke of York, and Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin prior to Edward's signing of the Instrument of Abdication on 10 December 1936.
