And, since this was Scott's first marriage with Barbara, it wasn't the first of his wife since she was previously married to former husband Ronnie Knight, a former nightclub from 1964 - 1985, and chef, Stephen Hollings from 1986 - 1995. Like Scott, Stephen was also much junior in age to Barbara with being eighteen years younger.
Mitchell and his lover never shared children as Barbara never wanted one after facing the rejection of her father following her parents' divorce. Whatsoever, Scott also couldn't care less about having children.
And, their love proved to be true as the two never became separable and fulfilled their marital vows till Barbara took her last breath on 10th December in London where she was admitted to a nursing care home upon the suggestion of her doctor.
Windsor was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2014 but only opened up about the struggle in 2018. Mitchell searched several caring homes to find the best one. He was also by his wife's side when she passed away at 8:35 PM. Announcing the news, Mitchell shared the sadness of losing his partner where he mentioned Barbara as his 'wife, best friend and soulmate.'
