Throne for a Royal Loop

IF Victoria and David Beckham are looking for the perfect wedding gift for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there is a "sex chair" from the prince's family for $128,500 that would be a scene stealer.

Harry's great-great-great-grandfather, King Edward VII, was famous for his womanizing - including an affair with Alice Edmonstone, the great-grandmother of Harry's stepmother, Camilla Parker Bowles. The king had a made-to-measure siege d'amour, or "seat of love, " build and installed in his favorite bordello, Le Chabanais, in 1890.

It will be on exhibit at M.S. Rau Antiques in New Orleans as part of its show, "Vice & Virtue: An Exhibition of Sex, Saints and Sin, " opening April 7.
